Andres Felipe
Andres is a young man, who is well-known in his family and by the residents of his neighborhood, for having outstanding musical talent. Since he was young he has been excited about making music, being in a band and selling the product of his artistic talent. He belonged to a band some time ago that made a CD to sell that he and his family are very proud of. Andres has always wanted to contribute to the household income as well as record a CD to sell to generate income so he can contribute to the household expenses. Since he is just starting out in the music business, Andres is short on money to finish paying off the CD he recorded with his band. He has already done many things to generate income, from participating in the lottery to working in sales but there aren't any other opportunities. He has high hopes that a loan will allow him to finish paying for the recording costs of the CD so that he can reproduce and distribute it.

Andres has always dreamed that his family will have a better quality of life and hopes that this will provide new income so he can start fulfilling that dream.

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.
