Update on San Fernando Ii Group

The San Fernando Community Bank is comprised of nine members, all single mothers, with a total of 16 children to care for between them. They are each from El Sauce, a town in the northern part of the country. The region is known for its milk, cheese, and curd production.

Unfortunately these women have not had the opportunity to study due to a lack of economic resources, but they each desire a better future for their children. Thanks to her entrepreneurial spirit and desire to succeed, Modesta Aurora has a job selling cuajada as a street vendor and from her home. Her routine is to work eight hours a day under the hot sun, carrying a 20 kg (roughly 45 lbs) basket of cuajada on her head. She carries out this duty with pleasure as it is her way of making a living for herself and her children.

The San Fernando Community Bank appreciates the assistance that Kiva donors offer to persons of limited resources and impoverished countries such as Nicaragua so that people may obtain dignified employment.

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.
