Unidas Por Siempre Group
Update on Unidas Por Siempre GroupThe group “Unidas por Siempre” (Forever United) is made up of five hard-working, entrepreneurial women who make their livings doing diverse sales activities.
Jane, 32, lives with two children who are still minors. For three years, Jane has been selling food items: wings, sweetbreads, hot dogs and tripe outside a school. Years ago, she made a living as a hostess in a restaurant in the area where she lives.
She would invest the loan in the purchase of sweetbreads, hot dogs and wings. Her biggest wish is to buy a stand from which she could offer her food to the clients she has obtained.
The group is thankful to the Kiva investors for the loan granted. Jane is the first one on the right side dressed in a pink shirt.

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.
