Update on Gloria

Gloria is widow and lives in Carmen Annex, Ozamiz City. To make a living, Gloria owns and operates a transportation services business. While it is not the only means of generating revenue, the main source of income for the business comes from operating motorcycle-transport services. She also provides manicures and pedicures in their community to earn extra income. She has been doing this for ten years. She successfully repaid her previous loan, which helped keep her business running. After she joined Gata Daku MPC, her ability to engage business was improved, as was her quality of life. She also gained access to microfinance services and was able to take out a new loan to buy a new manicure and pedicure set, with a portion being used to buy tires for her motorcycle. She is hopeful that, with this new beauty set, she will gain more clients and generate more income for a better future.

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.
