Update on Marilyn

Marilyn previously accessed a PHP 25,000 loan that she used to buy spare parts and accessories and to pay for the maintenance of her tricycle unit. Her earnings were a big help for the education of her children, and in her personal, household, and business expenditures.

Marilyn would like to apply for another loan, in the amount of PHP 30,000, to buy spare parts and pay for the maintenance of her tricycle unit. Her profits from her business will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs and the education of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.

Marilyn dreams to be more successful in business and she hopes that all her children will finish their studies. Every week, she meets with her co-fellowship members* to share stories of her work and to draw strength and inspiration, by studying the Word of God.

* All Center for Community Transformation (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.

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.
