Update on Evenecer GroupThe communal bank "Evanecer" is made up of eight members: they are single mothers who want to better themselves. They are from El Sauce, in the northwestern part of the country. The members like to spend their free time with their families, and prepare typical meals, such as "Carne de Baho" (a meat and yucca dish), for them. Sadly, none of the members were able to pursue higher education and have had to work from a young age.
Thanks to her hard work and desire to get ahead, Luz Marina is the coordinator of the communal bank, and earns her living from a "pulpería" located in her house. A "pulpería" is a small shop that sells edible products in small amounts, such as rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, eggs, as well as detergent and soap. For 12 years, she has been earning her living by selling these products.
The loan will be used to invest in working capital and stock up on supplies so that Luz Marina can increase her sales in the near future. The communal bank "Evanecer" is grateful for the help that Kiva investors provide to people with limited resources in poor countries such as Nicaragua, allowing them a decent means of earning a living.

Concurrent and Successive Loans
Our Field Partners often work with borrowers over a series of loans as the borrowers build credit, take out bigger loans, and expand their businesses. In order to make it easier for our Field Partners to post loans for borrowers who have been listed on Kiva before, we allow them to post successive and concurrent loans for their Kiva borrowers. This means that our Field Partners are able to post a borrower's second, third, etc., loan on Kiva without having to re-enter all of the borrower's information.
This borrower has been listed on Kiva before, so you'll see an updated loan description, as well as excerpts of the original descriptions from earlier loans. Most borrowers take out loans consecutively, meaning that they receive a second loan after having repaid the first. However, sometimes our Field Partners give out concurrent loans, allowing borrowers to take out one primary loan and a secondary "add-on" loan along with it. These "add-on" loans are typically smaller than the borrower's primary loan and serve a different purpose. Because Field Partners can now post loans as successive and concurrent loans, you will be able to track borrower progress over time and see the various ways a borrower is working with our Field Partners through funds from Kiva’s lenders.
This is a Group Loan
In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.
Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
