Update on El Triunfo (Flat) Ahorros GroupBertha is another member of the communal bank "El Triunfo". She is 49, has a primary education and is married to Margarito who works as a wage earner. They have five children who are all adults and work.
For four years, Bertha has been working as a merchant. She has a small grocery store at home which she began by selling only soft drinks. Little by little she introduced more products and expanded the business. She is very happy with this activity because in addition to earning her own income she offers a service to the people in her community. It is one of the few stores in the town which helps sales volume even more. She says groceries are always sold, no matter what the season or money situation may be.
A loan from VisionFund will help her buy beans, oil, rice, coffee, sugar, salt, cookies, sweets, soft drinks, detergents and canned goods to stock her business. She hopes this investment will allow her business to proser so her family's quality of life will improve.
The group is grateful for the support received through the Kiva and VisionFund loans for their business.
The other members of the group are: Emma who sells groceries, Heladia who raises pigs, Emiliano who grows sugar cane, Gabino who grows sugar cane, Teodoro who sells soft drinks and Laura who sells snacks.

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.
