Update on George

This is George. He previously accessed a 20,000 PHP loan that he utilized to purchase additional stock of mineral water and LPG tanks needed in his business. His earnings were a big help for the education of his children and in their personal, house hold and business expenditures.

He would like to apply for another 30,000 PHP loan that he will use to pay for additional stock of mineral water and LPG tanks needed in his business. More items to sell will result in better profit. His profits from his business will definitely help him to sustain his family's daily needs and the educational expenses of his children. He looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in his heart.

George hopes that his business will continue to be successful and dreams to give his children a good and quality education. He faithfully meets with his co-fellowship members to share stories of his work every week and where he can also 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. The fellowship groups gather each week to study the word of God, build social capital, and pay microfinance loans.

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.
