Update on Resma

Resma is from Lupagan, Clarin, MIsamis Occidental where she operates and owns a farm to make a living. Her husband is also earning income from operating a vehicle. They both work together in order to support the needs of her three children.

Resma successfully repaid her previous loan from Gata Daku Multi-Purpose Cooperative (GDMPC) that was used to improve their farm.

They planned to cultivate the adjacent farm, so without hesitation, Resma borrowed a new loan of PHP 15,000 to finance the costs of plowing and fertilizing her farm.

She wants to save the profit for the future education of her children.

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.
