Update on GuadalupeGuadalupe previously accessed a loan in the amount of PhP 50,000, which she used to buy fruits and vegetables to offer for sale. Her increased earnings were a big help in the family's personal, household, and business expenditures. In addition to her store, she rents out an apartment for additional income. Her husband is a farmer, and they both generate income to support their family.
She would like to apply for another PhP 50,000 loan, which she will use to purchase more fruits and vegetables needed in her business. Her profits from business will significantly help her to sustain her family's daily needs and support the educational expenses of her children. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.
Guadalupe is hopeful that her business will last a long time, and her goal is to give her family a good future. Every week, she meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business, as well as to draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God she studies.
*All Center for Community Transformation Credit Cooperative (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.
