Update on SenaidaSenaida is very thankful for the financial assistance extended to her as she was able to purchase more quantities and varieties of grocery items and products needed in her business. Her earnings were a big help for her children’s education, and in their personal, household and business expenditures.
She would now like to apply for another 20,000 PHP loan to buy more groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to add to her inventory. The more items displayed at the store, the better, as more items to sell will result in better profit. Her profits from the business will definitely help to cover her family’s daily needs and her children’s educational expenses. She looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in her heart.
Senaida hopes that she will become a more successful and prosperous entrepreneur through all her hard work in business. She meets up with her co-fellowship* members to share stories of her life and business every week, and she draws strength and inspiration from the fellowship and the Word of God she 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 micro finance loans.

Kiva allows our Field Partners to re-use the same photo for individual borrowers that have been posted on Kiva's website once before in a 24 month period, and we allow them to re-use group photos for up to 24 months, provided that 80% of the current group's membership is represented.
Taking, collecting, and uploading photos of borrowers is one of the most challenging elements of using Kiva for our Field Partners. In order to make Kiva easier for Field Partners to use, we have allowed them to post successive and concurrent loans without taking a new photo of the borrower if the criteria above are met.
