Yaqueline es una joven emprendedora que quiso montar su propio negocio para generar ingresos con los cuales pueda contribuir con sus padres al pago de los gastos de su hogar. A pesar de que Yaqueline trabaja para una empresa durante gran parte del día, en sus ratos libres atiende su negocio con el ánimo de sacarlo adelante y poder en un futuro depender solo de este. Yaqueline se dedica desde aproximadamente 6 años a la venta de ropa como jeans, buzos, camisetas, chompas, entre otros, y gracias a esto genera sus propios ingresos. Por la buena calidad de sus productos, Yaqueline tiene muy buena reputación entre su clientela, y esto ha hecho que cada vez capte más clientela con el pasar del tiempo. Yaqueline ha presentado un inconveniente que es la recuperación de su cartera, pues a veces sus clientes se retrazan en sus pagos y esto hace que se quede sin capital para seguir trabajando, sin embargo, esta dificultad la ha venido superando creando una cultura de buen pago entre sus clientes. Gracias a que un cliente le ha hecho un gran pedido de sus productos, Yaqueline requiere comprar a su proveedor la mercancía, pues con el inventario que tiene no le es suficiente para satisfacer el pedido de su cliente. Es por esto que Yaqueline tiene la esperanza en que un préstamo le brindará la oportunidad de acceder a la compra de ropa para satisfacer un gran pedido que le ha hecho un cliente.

Yaqueline espera poder seguir generando ingresos para su hogar, de modo que les pueda mejorar la calidad de vida a sus padres. Además, Yaqueline sueña con que su negocio crezca y pueda abrir un gran almacén donde pueda generar empleo para las personas más necesitadas, y desde el cual les pueda brindar a sus padres una estabilidad económica y grandes oportunidades de progreso.

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.
