Update on Mujeres De Fortaleza Group

The communal bank "Mujeres de Fortaleza" (Women of Strength) consists of 8 members, all women from the same community. They are mothers of families and have (together) 15 dependent children. They belong to the Malpaisillo township, part of the city of León. Malpaisillo is a pretty place, with hard-working, humble people from the countryside who enjoy a calm, peaceful life. The daily work routine of Dinora Corina, the coordinator of the bank, is to get up at 4 am and work until the sun goes down, day after day, to work in her business. The business activities consist of selling milk and milk curds, an activity that is very typical of this township, since she is a producer of milk because she has her cows and calves. She decided to form a communal bank so they could opt for this credit in order to advance with their little businesses. The communal bank Mujeres de Fortaleza is very thankful for the help that the Kiva lenders offer to people of scarce resources and poor countries such as Nicaragua so that they can have a dignified means of living. With the financing, she will buy more milk and milk curds to satisfy the demands of her customers and neighbors in her township.

A salute to all the Kiva lenders, and "Vive, León, Nicaragua."

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.
