Update on Giri Puteri Group

This group is happy because their pig-breeding businesses are doing well. The price for pork is quite high so now is a good time to sell all the pigs. All the members earn a satisfactory profit.
Ni Luh, as the treasurer, sold all of her pigs. Given a mixture feed, the pigs can grow healthy and fat. Now Ni Luh can fullfill her daily needs from her business with a little bit left for savings.
One of the members resigned because she followed husband to the city where he had a new job.
With only 10 members left, Giri Puteri group continues with another loan from MUK for the pig breeder program. They can obtain a loan without colateral and also get training to gain better knowledge of the pig business.
Ni Luh will use her loan to purchase five superior piglets for fattening and also purchase quality feed. She hopes her piglets can grow faster. She has plans to save all the profit for business capital.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

This loan is part of MUK’s effort to reach small business owners in rural areas of Bali in Indonesia. Borrowers often lack collateral to be eligible for working capital loans and are located in areas where access to microfinance is limited. MUK organizes borrowers into groups that cross guarantee one another, allowing them to qualify for a loan. By funding this loan you are providing underserved borrowers with crucial capital to sustain their existing businesses.

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.
