Update on Itacuan Group

This group is called “Itacuan” and consists of 11 members. All of the members are hardworking women who want to succeed in life and help their families.

One of the members is Sra. Luisa. She is 26 years old and a hardworking woman who is full of life. Luisa strives to succeed in life and fulfill her dreams. She is happily married to Sr. Anastacio, who is 32 years old. Her husband has worked as a farmer and a bricklayer since he was 26.

Sra. Luisa has been selling chickens for 10 years. She enjoys this type of work, but when she has a few chickens she will stop selling so that she can use what she has to feed her family. Occasionally she will extend credit to people that she knows and they will have a week to pay for the chickens. Luisa has two children, an 11-year-old daughter and a 7-year-old son. Her children help with butchering and plucking the chickens and then she cleans them. What she enjoys most about her business is cleaning and butchering the chickens because she watched her mother perform these duties when she was a girl and also got to help her.

Sra. Luisa finished her high school education. She knows how to read and write very well, but she also enjoys mathematics. Luisa has a grocery store, so she knows how to make change, buy merchandise, calculate how much she will pay, and determine whether she should buy. She is requesting a loan to buy more chickens to sell in her community and in the neighboring areas. Luisa is extremely grateful to Fundación Realidad for the support that has been given to her so that she can move forward and succeed in life. If she was not working, then she would not have extra funds for whenever unexpected emergencies arise. Luisa is considered to be an intelligent, hardworking, and responsible person because of the values instilled in her by her parents. She now wants to pass those same values on to her children.

Thanks to the support Fundación Realidad has given to the other members of the group, they have been able to expand their businesses, generate more earnings, and help their families. The other members of the group are as follows:
• María del Carmen sells fish.
• Emma sells live and butchered chickens.
• Francisca sells gasoline.
• Elizabeth sells Mexican street food.
• Carmen sells live and butchered chickens.
• Eufemia Inés sells live and butchered chickens.
• Araceli sells Mexican street food.
• Matilde sells Mexican street food.
• Justina sells milk and cheese.
• Leslie Diana sells Mexican street food.

They thank Fundación Realidad for helping them change their lives.

Additional Information

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.
