Update on Las Mojarritas Group

Margarita is one member of Las Mojarritas group. She is a single mother of a child who is studying primary school, she only had the opportunity to study through secondary school. Margarita says that her parents were engaged in fishing because they live in a community located at the shore of a lagoon, and the main economic activity is selling mojarra [a type of sea bream].

She grew up learning how to fish and currently she makes a living out of this work. She says that she goes to fish every day. Then, they go out to sell the mojarra they caught during the day to close communities. She has more than 20 years in this business, and many people know her and go to her house to buy.

She will invest the loan in the purchase of fishing nets, awnings, and in the maintenance of her boat. For the future, Margarita wishes her business to continue growing and to obtain more customers, so her profits will increase and she will be able to keep paying the studies of her son. She said "thanks to the foundation for coming to the community to give loans to me and my people. With its plans of payment they are helping a lot, God gives them more to keep helping".

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.
