Update on PeterThis is Peter. He received a previous 13,000 PHP loan that he used to purchase scrap materials that he needed in his recycling business. His earnings were a big help for the education of his children and for his family's personal, household, and business expenditures.
Peter is requesting a 20,000 PHP loan to buy scrap material. The profits from his loan will definitely help to sustain his family's daily needs and educational expenses of his children. Peter looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in his heart. He hopes to be able to expand soon, and he fervently hopes to have his own truck. Peter faithfully meets up weekly with his co-fellowship* members to share stories of his work and draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God he studies.
* All CCT community partners/clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet on a weekly basis. A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 30 community partners. Groups gather each week to study the Word of God, build social capital, and pay microfinance loans.

More information about this loan
On Friday November 8, 2013, Super Typhoon Haiyan made its way through Southeast Asia, causing substantial damage to homes and businesses in areas of the Philippines. Given the state of devastation following this storm, borrowers living and working in these areas may have difficulty making repayments on their loans, thus making their Kiva loans higher risk.

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.
