Update on Nuestra Esperanza Group

The communal bank Nuestra Esperanza [Our Hope] is made of ten members of the same community. They are hard-working, responsible people who have dreams and goals to reach in their personal lives as well as the workplace.

The Nuestra Esperanza members are engaged in different economic activities that are the means of subsistence for them and their children, to support and offer the children oportunities to study, despite the adversities and sacrifices encountered day by day.

Zayda is the coordinator. Thanks to her efforts and desire to get ahead, she has a small general store in her home, where she sells food products in small quantities, such as rice, beans, sugar, oil, soap, milk, bread, cuajadas [milk curd], matches, ice cubes, tiste and chicha [typical drinks].

She works about twelve hours per day. She gets up at 5am to receive her clients. A lot of her time is required by the store, in order to keep her clients and stock the products in demand. She closes 9 pm, seven days a week. In this way, she has been able to raise her children and to earn her daily bread through decent work. She has set many goals for herself, such as to finish her house, and to prepare her children to follow professional careers.

The communal bank Nuestra Esperanza is thankful to the Kiva lenders for the assistance offered to bring a better future to countries of scarce economic resources, such as Nicaragua.

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.
