Hebert Alexander
Hebert has a successful business as a locksmith and metal welder; he is well known in the neighborhood for his good work and service. As he has five years of experience through working in various workshops, he has been able to keep his job, and has tried to improve his family’s living conditions.

For this reason, he is requesting a loan to purchase tools for his work, such as leather-crafting tools, a press, compressor, welding gun, and hand tools. With these supplies he will be able to continue to provide his services, since the tools he currently uses are in poor condition, and he is lacking some.

Hebert is single and lives with his parents, who he always tries to help financially, so that they can support their home and improve their lives. His biggest dream is to have a large workshop with several employees.

Additional Information

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.
