Update on Filipina

This is Filipina. She previously accessed a 25,000 PHP loan that she used to buy spare parts and cover maintenance costs for her computer shop. Her earnings were a big help for the education of her children, as well as in their personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another 50,000 PHP loan to buy parts and cover maintenance costs for her computer shop. The profits from her business will help her to sustain her family's daily needs and the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Filipina hopes to be able to expand her business soon, just as she dreams of giving her children a high quality education through all her hard work in her business.She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week, and where she can draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God, which she studies.

* All CCT community partners and 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.
