Update on Las Palmyx Group

This group is called Las Palmyx and it’s composed of 13 hardworking, humble women who carry out a variety of economic activities. The members of this group are from a small town called Mancuernas, a pretty town with green trees and hardworking people. One of the traditions in Mancuernas is celebrating the town’s feast day on May 15th. Carnival rides come and there is much fun for the children.

Maribel Elvia sells shoes and clothes; she goes to Acapulco every month to buy her merchandise. Doña Mari as she’s better known by her fellow group members tells us that she likes her business very much because it produces good profits. Maribel Elvia is 37 years old, happily married to Alfonso, 38, and they have two children: Jennifer Maribel, 15 and Juan Luís, 12.

Mari asked for the loan to buy more clothes and shoes to sell since her business makes good profits so she can give her children a better life.

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.
