San Ángela
Ángela is a woman who, despite difficult circumstances, has been able to recover and move herself ahead. Some years ago, her husband died, so she needed to assume the responsibilities of the home and look after the well-being of their 3-year-old daughter. With sacrifice and discipline, this woman set herself up as a flatbreads wholesale supplier in the local market. She has made this activity into a source of income.

Today, she feels satisfied with her work and thanks God for the opportunity that He gave her to make herself into a micro-businesswoman. With the goal of continuing to grow and expand her niche in the market, she is requesting a loan. She will invest in the purchase of supplies since her sales are already growing.

Her greatest wish is to continue moving forward and to guarantee that her daughter has a suitable upbringing.

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.
