Update on CleofeThis is Cleofe. Her previous loan was a big help in her business as she was able to buy more products for her variety store. The income generated helped to pay for her family's daily expenses. She and her husband are working hard to provide for their everyday needs. Aside from her variety store, she also has a piggery and sells vegetables.
Cleofe would like to apply for another 50,000 Philippines pesos (PHP) loan to add groceries, toiletries, beverages and other products to her current inventory. The more items displayed in her store, the better her profits will be. And her increased income will definitely help her to sustain her daily needs.

Cleofe hopes that her business will continue to flourish and dreams that her whole family, including her grandchildren, will always be in good health. She meets up with her fellowship* co-members to share stories of her work every week and to also draw strength and inspiration from studying the Word of God.

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.
