Babi Rahayu Group
Update on Babi Rahayu GroupAfter a 6 month loan period, Ni Ketut and the Babi Rahayu group managed to pay off the loan. From the sales of piglets, Ni Ketut managed a profit of 250.000 IDR per month. This result is far from the previous expectation where Ni Ketut was hoping to make 400.000 IDR per month.
High feed prices and the low selling price for pork were the main factors that caused the drop in expected profits. But this did not dampen the spirit Ni Ketut to run her business. Ni Ketut along with other members of the group will return to borrow capital to shore up their businesses.
Ni Ketut has great hope for a better profit so as to assist her in improving the welfare of her family.
As a housewife who lives in the village, Ni Ketut is qualified to pursue the pig business. In order to help her husband to fulfill her family needs, Ni Ketut came back to MUK to borrow 1.500.000 IDR for her capital. Together with the Babi Rahayu group, Ni Ketut plans to use this loan to buy super quality feed for her piglets and sow.
Ni Ketut expects in the next 6 months that the price per kilo of pig will be rising while feed prices will be declining so that her profits will be better than the previous period.

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.
