Jorge Mario
Jorge is married and has 3 children aged 3, 11, and 15 years old. In order to generate income for his household, he sells the milk from the cows he has at his farm.

Thanks to this business, he has succeeded in getting his children ahead and giving them a good quality of life with better economic opportunities for advancement. His biggest dream is to be able to provide a quality education for his children. This is why he works hard in his business, so much so that customer orders have increased considerably and he does not have the capacity to respond to all of them.

This is why he wants a loan, to buy two dairy cows and thereby respond to all customer orders and keep growing his business. Doing so, he will overcome the difficulty of capital and, at the same time, his family will have more income to achieve financial progress and to have a better quality of life at home.

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.
