Ramiro Antonio
Ramiro, 27, loves his work; vegetation and animals are his passion. To be able to enjoy a beautiful sunset and share with his family is the very best gift life can offer him every day.

Since childhood he’s worked in agriculture and animal husbandry because his family has lived most of the time in the countryside. Today, he feels the time has come to make his life project happen. He wants to buy cattle to improve milk production capacity to increase sales and become a micro businessman.

His greatest dream is to introduce technological milking processes and to do so must save up to be able to make this investment. For the moment, he hopes his activity will improve to be able to provide better living conditions for his parents.

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.
