Update on Suta Pertiwi Group

Six months ago, the Suta Pertiwi group planned to use their loans for farming. With the persistence they do, the business can be run well. Supported by good weather and proper care, they got satisfactory results.

Wayan managed to sell his crops at a satisfactory price. He can fulfill his dream to improve his home and celebrate the holiday. Wayan thanks for the help he received. He and Suta Pertiwi group plan to continue their loan to improve their businesses.

Wayan, 47 years old, is living in a village in West Bali. He lives with his wife because his son is grown up and lives with his wife. As the leader of Suta Pertiwi group, he coordinates its members, both in terms of loans and business management. The total group lending was 20,000,000 IDR and Wayan got 2,500,000 IDR.

Wayan used the loan to buy fertilizer and insecticide. This time he has planted long beans, nuts and other crops which need less water because the dry season is coming. The crops need to be cultivated and sprayed with insecticide to get good results. Wayan hopes he will have a good result so it will be enough to save and repay the loan.

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.
