Yurani Andrea
At the age of 23, Yurani is a tenacious mother who decided to start her own business due to her pregnancy. She’s been selling bargain clothes for the past 7 years to her friends, acquaintances and neighbors. Gradually the business has grown and she’s furnished a space in her house to exhibit her merchandise and to have a place to sort and sell her wares.

Seeing that sales improve each time and the number of customers increases, Yurani wants to buy a larger assortment of clothes of good quality and in a wide variety so that profits will incrase proportionately. However, at the moment Yurani does not have sufficient money to buy the merchandise so she’s asking for a loan to buy all sorts of clothes seeking to meet customer demand so that they will find everything they are looking for or desire. In addition, Yurani also wants to make some adjustments to her locale where she keeps her merchandise to give it a more attractive appearance so that her business will be better situated. Yurani dreams with a better future for her son which is why she works so hard every day with dedication hoping to improve her and her family’s quality of life.

Important Information

This loan is structured on Kiva as a bullet loan, which means a single payment is required at the end of the loan term. By Colombian law, Kiva's partner Interactuar is required to offer borrowers loans with a variable interest rate that fluctuates with the market rate. Because fixed monthly payments are applied first to interest and then to principal, Interactuar is unable to predict upfront what portion of each repayment would go towards the loan principal. This creates a challenge with Kiva's system, which doesn't allow for unpredictable principal payments, and can result in some Interactuar clients appearing falsely delinquent. To remedy this, the loan has an end-of-term repayment plan on Kiva, but the borrower will continue scheduled monthly repayments to Interactuar, who will then pass along the principal amount to Kiva lenders. This means that you may see repayments made on this loan throughout the repayment term, as opposed to receiving repayment in full at the end of the loan term.
