Update on Fatima

This is Fatima, who previously took out a loan for PHP 30,000 to buy clothes and pants to sell to her customers. The money she earned from this loan was a big help in meeting her personal, household and business expenditures. She is working hard to continue making money and is applying for a new loan, for PHP 35,000, to buy more items to sell to her customers. Fatima hopes to expand her business and dreams of becoming rich. She faithfully meets up with her co-fellowship* members weekly to share stories of her work and also draw strength and inspiration from her religion.

*All CCT community partners/clients are organized into fellowship groups that meet weekly. A fellowship group is composed of 15 to 30 community partners who study religion, build social capital and pay micro-finance loans.

Additional Information

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. More information >>

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.
