Sari Makmur Group
Update on Sari Makmur GroupThe Sari Makmur group will be receiving their eighth loan through MUK, this one for 9,000,000 IDR, and will continue on raising pigs. This time they plan to grow pigs for pigroll (barbeque pig), which can be sold every two months.
Ni Ketut, this loan’s featured client, will be using her portion of the loan to buy four local piglets, as now the price for local piglets is more stable than that for superior piglets (good quality piglet). Her loan will also be used for more pig feed. She plans to sell the piglets after two months and then buy more.
The Sari Makmur group can repay a loan even beyond its due date. This is because the price of pork is not stable. During the period of the loan, the pigs’ growth can be maximized from being fed good food and vitamins. During this time, however, many breeders also sell their pigs. Prices become unstable, affecting anticipated profits. Although the group may earn little in profits during a cycle, it keeps on with this venture and expects eventual progress for its members’ efforts.
Ni Ketut hopes her piglet plan runs smoothly, and she earns more in profits. She also hopes MUK and Kiva will continue to support the group until its members have enough money to support their businesses themselves.
Previous Loan DetailsThe Sari Makmur group is requesting a loan in the same amount as their last loan. One member could not attend the meeting because of illness.

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.
