Blanca Irma
Blanca’s a tenacious, enterprising woman who strives daily to give her family the best. She married young and has a minor daughter who depends economically on her and her husband. She was unable to go to school full-time for lack of economic resources so she was only able to finish fourth grade in elementary school. She’s a woman dedicated to agriculture and growing coffee, an activity she’s been doing alongside her husband for more than 8 years. Her parents were unable to provide education for her but they did teach her how to earn a living honorably, properly and responsibly. Her brother-in-law sometimes helps with the crops when it’s time to pick and harvest the coffee. Her crops are located in the back of the same property where they live which makes caring for the crops daily easier.

Blanca is currently asking for a loan to buy fertilizer and to pay to transport it to her house so she can earn extra income selling this product in the community where she lives while at the same time protecting her crops from the various infestations that can damage crops like coffee.

Her dream is to be able to fix her house and give her daughter what she was unable to have herself: a formal education including elementary, secondary and university so she’ll have better employment opportunities, a better lifestyle and more economic solvency to cover expenses and other life necessities.

Additional Information

More information about this loan

These loans are designed for female farmers who produce a variety of products (onion, garlic, eggplant, spinach, mango, strawberries, etc.). Loan terms will vary depending on need, and borrowers can choose to make a "bullet" payment timed with harvest profits. Agricultural loans are considered risky in Honduras due to external forces like unpredictable weather and worldwide crop prices. As a result, many traditional financial institutions are unwilling to offer these loans. With Kiva funding, COMIXMUL will be able to reach more borrowers with agricultural loans tailored to their needs.
