Update on EdwinThis is Edwin. He previously accessed a 10,000 PHP loan that he used in buying more quantities of products like rice, chicken, eggs, condiments and seasonings for his food stall. His earnings are a big help for the education of his children and in their personal, household and business expenditures.
Edwin would like to apply for another 12,000 PHP loan for him to purchase more ingredients and supplies needed in his business. His profits from the business will definitely help him to sustain his daily needs and the educational expenses for his children. He looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in his heart.
Edwin hopes to grow his business in the coming years, just as he hopes to support his children's schooling up to the college level. He faithfully meets up with his co-fellowship* members every week to share stories of his work and to draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God he studies.

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.

Photo from previous loan
Kiva allows our Field Partners to re-use the same photo for individual borrowers that have been posted on Kiva's website once before in a 24 month period, and we allow them to re-use group photos for up to 24 months, provided that 80% of the current group's membership is represented.
Taking, collecting, and uploading photos of borrowers is one of the most challenging elements of using Kiva for our Field Partners. In order to make Kiva easier for Field Partners to use, we have allowed them to post successive and concurrent loans without taking a new photo of the borrower if the criteria above are met.
