Update on Banco Comunal Amor De Mujeres Group

The Amor de Mujeres communal bank is made up of 15 members, responsible single mothers with a total of 35 children under their care. They are from El Sauce, a place located in the northern part of the country. El Sauce is a place characterized by milk production and cheese curds. They are hardworking, responsible people who are eager to get ahead. These women fight day to day to get their little children ahead and offer them a better future, since they themselves couldn't go to school due to a lack of resources and had to start working at a young age.

Jeylin Josefa is the coordinator of the communal bank and her economic activity is selling various items of new clothing such as pants, shirts, dresses, socks, camisoles, t-shirts, underwear, sheets and towels. The purpose of the loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business buying and selling new clothing so that in future she can make more income. She works at her business for about 10 hours a day, offering her merchandise as a street vendor with a 20 kg pack. The Amor de Mujeres communal bank is grateful for the help from the Kiva investors offer people of low income in poor countries such as Nicaragua so that they can have dignified work.

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.
