Update on FranciscaFrancisca decided to acquire a loan to help her in her business.

Aside from her variety store that she has managed for many years now, she also sells rice and charcoal. She and her husband are working hard to provide income for their everyday expenses.
She would like to apply for another 35,000 PHP loan to buy different grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in her variety store. Her profits from her business will definitely help her to cover their daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.
Francisca dreams of having a real grocery store and hopes that her relationship with her husband will be better. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week. She also draws strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies.

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.
