Johana Andrea
Johana has made a living in the business of games console rooms for approximately the past two years, a job she learnt from her husband as he sells video games. With this business she has the opportunity to support her household economically so that together with her husband they can give their 7 year old son a good quality of life. Thanks to her husband's occasional free time he helps Johana in the business and she can cater to all her customer demands, which are growing rapidly. This is why she has the problem of lack of capital. Johana is looking for a loan in order to buy a television and two games consoles in order to respond to customer demand.

Her dream is to be able to have a large business which allows her to generate sufficient income to have her own house for her family and also to give her son a good 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.
