Eva Asturias
Eva is an enterprising young woman and a fighter who has a desire to succeed and move forward. She is married and makes a living planting and cultivating tomatoes along with her husband and their three children. Her parents taught her to work the land from a young age. She was able to study until the sixth grade of primary school.

Her three young children are in school and help with household chores when they finish their classes. Her greatest and most important goal is for them to finish primary school and continue studying so that they have new work prospects and new opportunities in life, because working in the fields is tiring and the income is very low. Her income at least covers basic family necessities such as staple goods, studies, medicine, and clothing, always with many restrictions.

Eva is asking for help to buy seeds and to mechanize her land in order to plant and cultivate tomatoes. She works along with her husband in order to avoid more costs and to have a slightly higher income.

Her goal is to be able to help her children with their studies and to help her husband with their household expenses. Without a doubt, she also hopes to keep moving forward, but her dream and her wish is to see her children graduate from university with a degree which allows them to develop themselves, as well as to integrate easily and perform well at work. She hopes that they are able to study for a profession which allows them to achieve their dreams and be the best they can be in life.

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.
