Update on SusanSusan is thankful for the financial assistance extended to her as she was able to buy more ready-to-wear products needed for her business. The loan was helpful not just in her business but also in the education of her children. Her accessory business was also helped by the loan that she acquired. Her income from her business assists in her everyday household expenditures. She and her husband work hard to provide for their everyday needs.
Susan would like to apply for another 60,000 PHP loan to buy additional stock of ready-to-wear products and merchandise items, like polo shirts for men and women, socks, and shirts, in order to expand her product inventory. The more items displayed at the store the better. Having more items to sell will result in better profits. Her profits from her business will definitely help her to meet her family's daily needs and pay for her children's educational expenses. Susan looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.
Susan hopes to have more products to sell so that her business will grow bigger. She dreams that her family will always be in good health. She meets up 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 and 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.

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.

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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
