Glory Dewata Group
Update on Glory Dewata GroupAfter undergoing their first loan, Ni Wayan was able to repay their loans on time. During six months of maintaining pigs, Ni Wayan enjoyed satisfactory results. After the sales, Ni Wayan used the net gain from the overall sale of the pigs for her children's education and for the family. The group hopes to continue their loans in the second period. They said thank you to the lenders, Kiva and MUK for supporting their bussines.
Having succeeded in the previous period, the Glory Dewata Group proceeded to the next loan. Based on the assessment of MUK, the group received 20,000,000 IDR for the group and the individual members got 2,000,000 IDR each. Because most have been able to increase their number of pigs, the current loan was used to buy food and fix the cages. Ni Wayan used the loan to buy a local sow and build new cages. She was very pleased with her efforts. She hopes to become a big pig seller in her village and all the profits will be used to improve the welfare of her family and make her dream come true.

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.
