Gloria Isabel
Gloria is a single mother and head of the household who has always wanted to provide her only son with a good quality of life and who always does her best to get ahead.

Gloria sells personal care products from a catalog such as lotions, hand creams, cosmetics, and other items and thanks to this she generates the necessary income to cover all the household expenses. She has been in business for some time and little by little her sales have increased which has permitted her to give her son access to a better education.

Because currently she has numerous orders to cater to and because she does not have a lot of capital, Gloria is searching for a loan to provide the possibility of buying personal care products so she can fulfill these orders from her customers. In this way she can continue expanding her business and offer her clientele good service.

Also, Gloria hopes that her son has the opportunity to have a better education and she wants to provide him with a stable economic future.

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.
