Sarwa Wiguna Group
Update on Sarwa Wiguna GroupNi Ketut is the head of the Sarwa Wiguna group. She makes her daily living as a pig farmer. And now she has a new business as a canteen owner at a school. She lives with her husband.
Ni Ketut worked on developing her pig business by borrowing 2,000,000 IDR from MUK. From the sale of her pigs in this period, Ni Ketut managed a profit of 750,000 IDR. This gain was very helpful as the family's finances are currently experiencing difficult times due to increasingly expensive necessities of life.
Ni Ketut, along with the Sarwa Wiguna group, decided to continue loaning from MUK as this has been especially helpful in developing the pig business. Ni Ketut wants to increase her pig business by keeping pigs for a local pig barbecue. She needs a new loan to purchase three pigs and feed. She will also buy some merchandise for her canteen. The pigs, used in pigrolls, are usually only kept for 2-3 months and then are sold. Her husband supports her business by helping her feed the animals and clean the barn. Ni Ketut saves her profit because she has a dream to renovate her kitchen.

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.
