Jepun Sari Group
Update on Jepun Sari GroupNi Ketut, head of the group, tells of her success raising pigs. With the first loan she got from Koperasi Mitra Usaha Kecil (MUK), Ni Ketut obtained one sow. Then, she had two sows and each sow had given birth to nine piglets. She sold the piglets after raising them for two months.
She saved all of the profits, and they will be used for working capital so that she can be financially independent. Ni Ketut is very grateful for the help she has received so far. She still expects assistance from MUK, both in terms of capital or training, so that she and all members of the group can be a successful pig farmer.
After obtaining satisfactory results in previous loan periods, the Jepun Sari group continues lending. Now, they receive a higher loan amount to increase business. The current loan will be used to purchase piglets, feed, and repair cages. The Jepun Sari group can repay the loan on time.
Ni Ketut will use the loan to buy feed and repair cages. She will keep six piglets for fattening, and they are scheduled to be sold five months later. She hopes the welfare of her family will be better, and if all goes well, she will increase the number of sows.

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.
