Oscar David
Oscar is a 28-year-old man who is full of dreams and aspirations for his life. From a very young age he has held several jobs, but basically all of them involved working at supermarkets or selling merchandise. As a great entrepreneur and visionary of the future, Oscar wants to start his own business. His idea is to stay in a particular business within a designated period of time, build it up, and then hand over responsibility to an employee so that he can start another venture. He plans to have a supermarket that generates good revenues and provides enough jobs in the area.

Oscar intends for his store to distribute basic household items, so he is requesting a loan in order to buy display cabinets, shelves, and merchandise so that he can undertake this project.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

By supporting this loan, you're helping a borrower launch a new business!

This loan is designed for an entrepreneur who needs working capital to start a brand new business. Along with the loan, Kiva's field partner Interactuar provides counseling, training courses, and other financial resources to help new, riskier entrepreneurs set up young businesses.

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.
