Mujeres Responsables Group
Update on Mujeres Responsables GroupThe Mujeres Responsables communal bank is made up of 12 members who are mothers with a total of 20 children under their care. They are natives of Leon, which is situated in the western region of the country. They are known for being hardworking and responsible with a desire to succeed. In their free time, they enjoy spending time with their families. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources, they were not able to pursue an education because they needed to work to help with household expenses. They are now fighting to give their children a better future.
Thanks to her effort and desire to get ahead, Rosa is their coordinator. She has a business selling baked goods door-to-door, and by custom order. She sells various pastries such as: picos, cachos, semitas, polvorones, maquetas cortadas, empanadas, and pan de especies. She works about 10 hours a day selling her products.
The goal of this loan is to invest in working capital and to supply her bakery so that in the near future she can increase her earnings.
Mujeres responsables is grateful for the help the Kiva lenders provide to people with limited resources and in poor countries such as Nicaragua, so that they may have a dignified line of work.

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.
