Update on Divino Nino Group

Divino Niño Communal Bank is made up of nine members from the rural community known as Achuapa. These people describe themselves as hardworking and responsible with a desire for personal self-improvement. Unfortunately they weren't able to continue their studies because they needed to work from a very young age. Currently they are fighting hard to complete their dreams such as giving their children education, housing, and stability.

Thanks to her effort and desire to get ahead, Elsa is the coordinator of the communal bank. She makes a living running a "pulpería." A "pulpería" is a small store that sells food items such as matches, oil, rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, eggs, cream. She dedicates more than 12 hours a day to her business, which is located at her house. She gets up very early to take advantage of the morning. Twice a week she does the shopping to stock her store. Despite the hard work she does she is very satisfied with her job since it has been her means of supporting the family and satisfying their needs. The goal of the loan is to invest in working capital and stock her business by purchasing food products so she can earn a better income in the near future. Divino Niño Communal Bank is grateful for the help that Kiva lenders give to low-income people and poor countries like Nicaragua so they have the means for 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.
