Update on Redentor

Redentor is thankful for the financial assistance extended to him. He was able to buy the needed spare parts and accessories for his tricycle, which he has had for six years now. His loan was also helpful in the education of his children. As a widower, he is working hard to provide for everyday expenses.

He would like to apply for another 19,000 PHP loan for him to buy spare parts and pay for the maintenance of the tricycle unit as well as to buy some equipment for the repair shop. His profits from his business will definitely help him to sustain the daily needs and educational expenses of his children. He looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in his heart.

Redentor dreams of being more successful in his business, and hopes to give a good life to his children. He meets up with his co-fellowship members to share stories of his work every week and to 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 microfinance 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.
