Update on Virgilio

Virgilio owns and operates a Jeepney unit. He has been successful in this business for 25 years, and he repaid his previous loan used for the business. He also finds ways to improve his income to provide their everyday needs and necessities.

Relative to this, he would like to take a new loan to buy spare parts and accessories for the vehicle. He is requesting an amount of PHP 30,000 for the maintenance of the Jeepney unit, and to buy other materials needed in his business. He sincerely expresses his heartfelt thanks and appreciation for this assistance in advance.

In the future, Virgilio hopes to buy another Jeepney unit, and desires to improve their financial status. He meets with his co-fellowship* members every week to share stories of his work. That 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 repay 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.
