Update on RobertoThis is Roberto. His previous loan helped him a lot in his farming business. The loan also helped with his household expenditures. He and his wife are working hard to provide for their everyday needs.
He would like to apply for a new 25,000 PHP (Philippines pesos) loan that he will be utilizing to buy fertilizers, seeds and other tools for the maintenance of the farm. His profits from his business will definitely help him to sustain their daily needs. He looks forward to this financial increase with gladness and thankfulness in his heart.
Roberto hopes that his farm will continue to expand. As a CCT community partner, he meets up with his co-fellowship* members to share stories of his work every week, and this is where he can also draw strength and inspiration from the Word of God he 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 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.
