Update on Rebecca

Rebecca runs a funeral parlor and also has a junk shop to earn additional income. She previously accessed a 10,000 PHP loan that she used for her operating expenses. Rebecca’s earnings were a big help in her personal, household, and business expenditures.

Rebecca is requesting a 50,000 PHP loan to pay for the operating expenses of her funeral parlor and to buy supplies and materials needed. She will use the profit from her loan to sustain her daily needs. Rebecca looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart. She dreams of making it big in business and she hopes that her future will be secured. Rebecca meets up weekly with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business and draw strength and inspiration from studying 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 who gather 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.
