Alexandra Maria
Since she had her son (see photo), Alexandra began to look for alternatives to obtain income and thus offer him the best quality of life that is possible. In this way, she began to work in milk production. She bought a cow and began to forge a small dairy production job and currently has an agreement with a truck collector from the town of Rionegro. Her son is six years old and requires a lot of money. She wishes to buy a cattle lot that is being sold at a very good price. With this lot, she will be able to expand milk production and thus increase her family income. The money will be invested in the purchase of the lot of cattle. It is a great opportunity to keep advancing in life and be able to obtain the longed for house that she has dreamed of so much.

Additional Information

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.
