Diana Yaneth
At the age of 24, Diana is a young and enterprising woman who works as a day care worker at the Instituto de Bienestar Familiar. She carries out her activities from her house but the wages are not enough to cover her household expenses and to support her mother.

Given her need to increase her income and to improve the quality of her life, Diana started to sell products through a catalogue a few days a go. Her goal is to improve the quality of her life and in the future to go to school to earn a career.

Currently, Diana needs a loan to purchase a variety of products from the catalogue when they come up for sale to increase her profits. She also requires a few videos and samples to display the benefits of the products and to earn more clients and to establish a reputation for her business.

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.
