Daneira is a single mother, head of the family with 1 child, whose father abandoned him some time ago without offering any economic contribution for his upbringing. This has made Daneira have a great responsibility in her home in over to get her child ahead. Daneira offers mainly personal care products to her clients and she complements them with some kitchen and decorating items. The main difficulty that Daneira faces is that she does not have a fixed location where she can offer her merchandise, so she has to offer her products in the street and people can't locate her as easily. With the aim to buy a stand and better stock her business, Daneira is looking for a loan that will offer her the opportunity to buy a stand and buy personal care products to supply her business.

Daneira hopes that in this way her monthly income will increase considerably, given that her clients will be able to locate her more easily.

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.
