Update on Imelda

Imelda owns and operates a business producing copra (dried coconut meat) to earn a living. She helps her husband to grow and harvest coconut and to sell copra in town. With the income generated from her farm, her previous loan used for the copra business was successfully repaid.

Imelda also sells woven nipa to earn an extra income. Recently, she took a new loan from GDMPC micro credit to purchase fertilizer, such as manure, to help harvest more produce.

In the future, she wants to make improvements to her house and to improve the general living conditions of her family.

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.
