Yolanda De Los Dolores
At the age of 47, Yolanda is a fighter. She accomplishes everything she sets her mind to, and she has more than enough drive and reasons to strive and get ahead. Her family is her biggest motivation and the cornerstone of her existence.
Two years ago she decided to get started with her business idea. That's why she set up a small food stall located next to a construction site. There she makes breakfast and lunch, and sells snacks and refreshments to the construction workers and engineers.
Thanks to this business this woman provides food, housing and education for her three children. She dreams of being able to expand her business and turn it into a microenterprise. For that purpose she's currently requesting a loan which she'll use to purchase raw materials and supplies in order to prepare food.
She hopes that her profits will increase with this loan, so that she can ensure better living conditions for her children.

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.
