Update on Servando

This is Servando; his previous loan was a big help in his businesses. He is a variety store owner, and he is also a Jeepney ( a popular form of mass transit) operator. His loan also helped in the education of his children. As he increases his loan, his income also increases which he used in their household expenditures.

He would like to apply for another 60,000 PHP loan for him to buy groceries, toiletries, beverages, and other products to add to his inventory. The more items displayed at the variety store, the better. More items to sell will result in better profit. His profits from his business will definitely help him to sustain their daily needs and the educational expenses of his children. He looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in his heart.

Servando dreams that he will be more successful in his business, and hopes that his children will finish their studies. He meets up with his co-fellowship* members to share stories of his life and business every week, and also to draw strength and inspiration from the study of 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.
