Update on Mujeres Buscando Un Futuro Group

Irma, a mother of five children who are 30, 28, 22, 15 and 8 years old, has been working selling food for eight years now. This borrower, from the Mujeres Buscando Un Futuro (Women Seeking a Future) Group, lives with her five children and a sister. She is not the only source of support for her family now that the older children help her with household expenses.

She sells food every day and says she feels very proud of what she does. She works at this because it is in the family, since her mother also sold food. She intends to invest the money from the loan in the purchase of supplies to prepare the food and in new utensils for her stand. This mother's dream is to have more than one vendor stand.

She feels happy to belong to the group and receive the trust of the other members. She has only words of gratitude for the foreign lenders like KIVA and she wishes them the best of luck in their 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.
