Update on Abraham

This is Abraham. He previously accessed an 18,000 PHP loan that he utilized to purchase more quantities and varieties of grocery items, toiletries and beverages needed in his business. His earnings were a big help for the education of his children, and in his family's personal, household and business expenditures.

He would like to apply for another loan of 20,000 PHP to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add to his inventory. The more items displayed at the store the better. More items to sell will result in a better profit. His profits from his business will definitely help him to sustain his family's daily needs and in paying for his children's education. He looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in his heart.

Abraham hopes that he and his family will prosper in life and dreams that his business will continue to grow. He meets up with his co-fellowship* members to share stories of his life and business every week and in these meetings 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 repay Micro Finance 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.
