San Fernando Ii Group
Update on San Fernando Ii GroupThe "San Fernando II" communal bank has nine members - eight women and one man. They are all responsible parents, with a total of twelve children under their charge. The members are originally from Sauce, in the north of the country and can be characterised as responsible, hard-working and as people with a desire to move ahead in life. Unfortunately, due to a lack of money, they were not able to study and were forced to work from a young age in order to help with household costs.
Thanks to her effort and her desire to prosper, the communal bank's coördinator, Modesta, has a grocery store. There she sells consumable goods in small quantities - she sells rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, detergent, salt, eggs, cheese, creams and soap. She works some twelve hours a day selling her products. The objective for this loan is to invest it in working capital and to stock up her business with consumable goods so that, in the not-too-distant future, she can earn a higher income. The "San Fernando II" communal bank is grateful to Kiva lenders who are providing people with few resources and countries, such as Nicaragua, with the opportunity to have 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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.

Photo from previous loan
Kiva allows our Field Partners to re-use the same photo for individual borrowers that have been posted on Kiva's website once before in a 24 month period, and we allow them to re-use group photos for up to 24 months, provided that 80% of the current group's membership is represented.
Taking, collecting, and uploading photos of borrowers is one of the most challenging elements of using Kiva for our Field Partners. In order to make Kiva easier for Field Partners to use, we have allowed them to post successive and concurrent loans without taking a new photo of the borrower if the criteria above are met.
