Angel Gustavo
Angel can only be described as a charismatic person, friendly and with a good sense of humor that makes people laugh, even to close a business deal. This has helped make his business prosperous because visiting his establishment is a pleasant experience. Angel works in the agricultural sector and buys and sells animals such as chickens and fish. He learned this from his family and since his youth has put forth all his effort to transform and expand a small piece of land into something surprising. His main dream is to have a larger parcel and a recreational area for fishing. He wants to create a family atmosphere where sharing is reflected in every corner of his property. He is asking for a loan to buy supplies such as care for fish and chickens, fix up his fish tank, and build a large chicken house.

More information about this loan

By funding this loan, you are promoting entrepreneurship in remote regions, including areas recovering from guerilla warfare in Colombia, and helping to reverse the rural exodus which occurred in the past decades when a the rural population fled their countryside homes for the safer cities.

This Kiva loan was created by Kiva's field partner Interactuar specifically for Kiva funding, in an effort to reach more borrowers in rural areas. Most of the Interactuar's lending operations are focused in urban parts of Medellin. But this loan product is designed to provide working capital to riskier agricultural businesses who have been traditionally excluded from the finance sector.

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.
