Update on Erlinda

This is Erlinda. She previously took a 15,000 PHP loan, which she used to purchase merchandise items to resell in her business. Her earnings were a big help in her personal, household and business expenditures.

She would like to apply for another loan of 15,000 PHP. She will use this loan to buy additional supplies and merchandise to resell, like clothing, footwear, undergarments, and cosmetics. More items to sell will result in better profit for her. Her profits from business will definitely help her to meet her daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with happiness, and thankfulness in her heart.

Erlinda dreams of expanding her business and hopes that her grandchildren will have a good education. She meets with her co-fellowship members* every week, to share stories of her life and business and to draw strength and inspiration from the fellowship and the Word of God.

* 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.

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.
