Beatriz studied hairstyling for three years and worked in a beauty salon for a long time but a few months ago decided to become independent and open her own beauty salon in order to have better economic conditions at home and thus help her parents to have a better quality of lie.
She’s been getting ahead with her beauty salon and has won over a large number of customers. Thanks to this her quality of life has improved considerably. Thanks to her constant growth, Beatriz wants to offer better customer service and that’s why she’s looking for financing to buy work tools for her beauty salon to provide better quality service. Her dream is to have a large beauty salon where she can generate employment for many people and to be able to support her family through it.

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.
