Update on Ebenezer GroupThe Ebenezer communal bank is a group made up of seven enterprising people with a great deal of creativity in business.
Señora Ruth is 51 years old and married with three children. Ruth has had a small rented grocery store for about nine years. Ruth, with the help of her family, has figured out how to make a living. She has also managed to win the loyalty of her customers, which has generated earnings that allow her to cover her household costs. In the future, she would like to own her own shop where she could sell her products (sugar, coffee, milk, rice, etc.).
With the loan granted, Ruth will invest in the purchase of more products so that she can continue satisfying her customers' needs and thus be able to support herself. She and all the members are grateful to Kiva for the loan granted, and for the trust that has been placed in them.
Señora Ruth can be recognized by her light green shirt. She concludes with the promise that she will fulfill all her stated objectives.

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.
