I saw Microfinanzas Prisma is listed as paused, but still have active loans listed. Is that normal ?http://www.kiva.org/partners/71
Any other info ? I have a few delinquent loans from them at this point.
It's not normal, in that Kiva's partners are normally successful and well-run. In this case, MFP has been having liquidity problems lately, and has failed to make some payments when they were due. "Paused" means (in this case) MFP won't be able to post any new loans to Kiva for a while, and Kiva will be working with MFP management to see whether there is a payment plan they can work out, etc. Kiva decided, in this case, to allow the loans MFP had already posted to the site to finish fundraising, even after Kiva had declared the "Pause." Someone from one of my teams wrote in to Kiva contactus about it, and pretty much Kiva said that they feel there is a long and good history with this partnership, and a fair chance MFP will get back up to speed, so they let the loans that had already been posted stay on the site.
If you look at the repayment schedule of your delinquent loans, and click the button at the top left of the table that says something like "additional info" or "advanced" you will probably see that they say "Field Partner behind in repayment." If they instead say "Borrower behind," then the reason for the late payment was something other than MFP's liquidity issue.
