Las Rebeldes Group
Update on Las Rebeldes GroupIn the state of Oaxaca, there are many archeological remains of a civilisation greatly influenced by the Totonaca. This is the setting in which the group 'Las Rebeldes' (The Rebels) was created. It is comprised of 14 hard-working women: Petra (meat sales), Maria Irene (shoes and clothing sales), Guadalupe (tortilla sales), Araceli (fruit cocktail sales), Filomena (food to go), Laura (stationery sales), Maria de Jesus (desserts sales), Obdulia (undergarments sales), Gelasia (general store), Maria Isabel (clothing sales), Roberta (general store), Maricela (food to go), Alicia (undergarments sales), and Veronica (food to go). Veronica is a very cheerful person who has been selling food to go at her house for the past 5 years. She works there from 6 to 11 pm on the weekend, and on Sundays she also sells at the market from noon to 4 pm. She will use her loan to buy the ingredients and supplies she needs: tortilla, chili peppers, skewers, napkins, meat, gas, cream, cheese, paper, tomatoes, and other items. Her food is very popular thanks to her excellent service and her delicious recipes. Customers enjoy chatting with the whole family while waiting for their orders.

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.
