Update on Asri Lestari Group

The Asri Lestari group repaid their loan on time. The repayment was not attended by all members, but representated by the board. Ni Nyoman, as the head, decided to resign because she must move to another place and follow her husband. Because her new place is too from the other members, she can’t join the group again and control the group. She will try to establish a new group in her new place. She said thank you to the lenders, Kiva and MUK for supporting her and the Asri Lestari group. This period she sold all of her pigs and earned a satisfactory profit. She’s replaced by the secretary, Ni Luh.

Ni Luh is a housewife with three school-age children. Her husband works at the harbor near her house. She joined this group when it was first established. Ni Luh is also the head of her neighborhood. She’s using her portion of the loan to purchase superior piglets and feed for the two sows that she already owns. She hopes the sows give birth soon and give her healthy piglets that she can sell after two months. One new member joined the group.

MUK organizes borrowers into groups that cross guarantee one another, allowing them to qualify for a loan.

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.
