Update on Irene

This is Irene. She previously accessed an 23,000 PHP loan that she used for the repair and maintenance of an apartment she rents out for income. Her earnings were a big help in her family's personal, household, and business expenditures. She also sells some snacks for additional income.

She would like to apply for another 36,000 PHP loan that she will use for the repair and maintenance of an apartment for rent. Her profits from the business will definitely help sustain her family's daily needs. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Irene dreams of seeing her business expanding. She meets with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her work every week, where she can also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she 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.
