Update on Las Fresas Group

'Las Fresas' is the name of this group of 10 very hard-working and entrepreneurial women. Each member of the group carries out their own business activity with a view to earning a little extra money to help their husbands with their household expenses and provide her family with a better quality of life. The main business activities in this community are growing sugar cane and collecting resin from rubber trees.

Arianna is one of the members of this group. She is 25 years old and has a high school education. She is married to Jose Luis who works as an agricultural laborer and the couple have one son. Arianna tells us that her parents taught her to work when she was very young and when she got married she decided to find a way to help her husband with their household expenses so that they could save up and give their children a better life. For a little over two years, Arianna has been running a small grocery store in her home. She tells us that, at first, it was difficult to attract customers but she didn't become discouraged. On the contrary, she attracted customers by providing good customer service and keeping her business stocked. She is very happy with her store because she can work without having to neglect her family. Even her husband helps her to serve the customers. A loan from Fundación Realidad would help her to buy soap, oil, beans, rice, soup, toothpaste, napkins, sweet treats and soft drinks so that she can re-stock her business. She hopes that, as a result of this investment, her business will continue to grow because she would like to be able to pay for her son's future education.

Dominga - chicken sales
Martha - shoe sales
Florinda - grocery sales
Alejandra - cosmetics sales
Lucero - sale of sweet treats
Francisca - snack sales
Nora Yasmin - grocery sales

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.
