Update on Jonathan

Jonathan has been raising and selling hogs for three years now. He also manages a junk shop in his village, so he earns well for his family. Jonathan used the income from his previous loan to buy feeds and additional pigs and successfully repaid the loan.

For the time being, Jonathan is requesting another loan of 50,000 Philippine pesos (PHP) to purchase more feeds and hogs for his business. He will use his loan to improve his profits and will use the additional revenue to improve his family's general living conditions. He sincerely lets you know in advance his heartfelt thanks and appreciation for the assistance.

Jonathan hopes to further improve and expand his piggery. He also hopes for good health for him and his family and for the education of his children. He meets every week with his co-fellowship* members to share stories of his work and to draw strength and inspiration from the word of God.

* 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 micro-finance 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.
