Update on Divino Niño Sauce Group

The Divino Niño El Sauce communal bank is made up of eight members, seven women and one man who are single parents with 20 children. They're from El Sauce, located in the northern part of the country. These members are hardworking and responsible people with a desire for personal improvement. Unfortunately none of them were able to study because they had to work from an early age.

The coordinator of the communal bank is Rosa Melida, who's responsible for making the bank members' payments punctually. Her job is selling bread in the street and at home. She works some eight hours a day selling her bread from a 20-kilogram basket on her head. She does her job with great pleasure because it's how she supports herself and her children.

The goal of the loan is to invest in buying a variety of bread to sell to her customers, including rolls, sugar cookies, spice bread, and pineapple tarts. This way she can have a better income in the near future.

The Divino Niño Sauce communal bank is grateful for the help Kiva investors give to low-income people and poor countries such as Nicaragua so they have the means to a decent job.

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.
