Deny
Deny, 32, has become a life example for her neighbors who describe her as a tenacious, dedicated woman with a strong drive to get ahead. She has two minor children who are her greatest motivation to work hard. He rises early every morning to start her chores. She sends her children to school and does her housework and cares for her pigs, an activity that’s her only source of income to support her family. She sells the piglets to local butcher shops.

She’s currently asking for a loan to buy a breeding sow for massive reproduction that will generate higher profits and better living conditions for her and her family. Her greatest dream is to own a house to guarantee a roof for her children to rest under every day.

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.
