La Paz Centro Group
Update on La Paz Centro GroupThe group consists of four hard working members and is coordinated by Anielca, 37 years old, married and mother of four children, but only three are dependent on her. She works making and selling products derived from corn such as nacatamales and tamales pisques (types of Nicaraguan tamales), and tortillas. She depends on her mother's help in preparing the product and the loan will be invested in the purchase of a quintal (46 kg) of corn, onion, sweet pepper, garlic, pork lard, banana leaves, annatto, spearmint, firewood, etc. With the loans, she managed to change a part of the roof of her house that had been deteriorating and with this achievement, her family benefited. The other members are Johana, a 30-year-old tomato vendor in the market in Granada for the last 3 years, Marta, 47 years old, who works making and selling tortillas and güirila (thick corn pancakes) in her home, and Wilber, a 30-year-old farmer. The loan is to purchase urea, pumpkin seeds, and corn seeds. The members have been an example of self-improvement during the three loan cycles they have received with this institution.

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.

Photo from previous loan
Kiva allows our Field Partners to re-use the same photo for individual borrowers that have been posted on Kiva's website once before in a 24 month period, and we allow them to re-use group photos for up to 24 months, provided that 80% of the current group's membership is represented.
Taking, collecting, and uploading photos of borrowers is one of the most challenging elements of using Kiva for our Field Partners. In order to make Kiva easier for Field Partners to use, we have allowed them to post successive and concurrent loans without taking a new photo of the borrower if the criteria above are met.
