Update on Progreso Group

Dulce María is one of the members of the group "Progreso." She is 30 years old, she studied at a college-prep school and she is a single mother of one son who goes to elementary school.

Dulce María told us that 6 years ago she decided to start her own business selling clothing and 3 years ago, she added selling pork to her business as well. She wants to improve her son's life and to offer him more opportunities in life. She began selling clothing by going door to door and selling her merchandise to friends and neighbors and she sells pork on the weekends (Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays). The day before, she first offers the meat to her neighbors and other members of the community and the next day she wakes up very early to get her product ready and then she delivers the orders. Dulce María needs this loan in order to purchase more men's and women's clothing like blouses, pants, shirts, T-shirts, dresses and purchasing more pork as well as plastic bags. She hopes that with this loan, her business will prosper and she will be able to offer a better quality of life and an education to her son.

The other members of the group are:

Laura who sells shoes.
Rita who sells food.
Susana who sells mole.
Martina who sells Mexican snacks.
Ruperta sells corn and flour
Virginia sells food.
Isabel sells shoes.
Araceli sells food.
Lizbeth sells clothing.

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.
