Dorance De Jesús
Dorance de Jesús, 39, makes a living raising chickens, which supports him and his family. He has had difficulties in life: because of financial conditions he was not able to get an education, and from a young age he had to work to survive. Currently he has his wife and three-year-old son, for whom he strives to get ahead, so he can give them what circumstances denied him.

His biggest dream is to be able to have a stable business that will give him peace of mind and security in the present and a better future. For this reason he's requesting a loan to buy animals for fattening and to maintain the corrals.

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.
