Update on Melati Group

Pictured is the Melati group, neighbors in the same village in Melaya, West Bali (three members of the group are not in the photo because of a religious ceremony they were attending at the temple). The group was formed out of these women’s common interest in raising pigs to supplement family income, and out of their interest in education on the best practices for pig raising.

The group has requested a new loan of 19,500,000 IDR, its fourth from MUK. Each member will receive 1,300,000 IDR which will be used to buy two quality piglets plus pig feed. While the price of feed and piglets is expensive, members of the group are already feeling the benefits from their first loan through their ability to meet the needs of their families.

Group member Ni Ketut will use her portion of the loan to buy a pig to breed. She has seen the possibilities in selling piglets. To reduce costs, she gave the mixture feed (feed mixture is a mixture of good quality feed which's purchase at store that is mixed with various types of leaves, such as banana leaves, taro leaves and other leaf types are useful for the growth of pigs). She hopes her pig venture will succeed and bring prosperity to the whole family.

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.
