Jaime De Jesús
Jaime, 68, is married and the father of a child whom he has gotten ahead with great effort.

He has more than 40 years of work experience in commerce. For 10 years he has made a living with his own business, a deli where he sells soda, pastry, sweets, beer, liquor, and fried food that his wife makes. He also rents a pool table for his customer's enjoyment. This has earned him enough income to pay for his household necessities as well as his son's education.

Jaime wants to invest his loan in buying stock wholesale (pastry, beer, liquor, soda, and other things). This will given him enough resources to respond to customer demand and improve his sales and income.

Jaime's goal is to keep on working to strengthen his business as long as God and his body allow. He wants to leave his business to his son to ensure him favorable economic stability so he'll enjoy better living conditions and greater well-being.

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.
