Lilian has worked in agriculture for more than fifteen years, an activity that her parents, who have been doing it all their lives, taught her. Lilian and her husband worked hard for a long time in order to buy a piece of land where they now work independently, growing coffee and selling it locally.
Lilian is requesting help to buy fertilizer and compost for her coffee plantation, in order to be able to improve her crops and protect them from the “roya” fungus [leaf rust], a disease that harms and destroys the plants that become ill.
Lilian’s goal is to be able to pay the loan and continue working and improving her plantation. Her dreams, as any other mother’s, is to give her children a better education so that they can have better job opportunities, become entrepreneurial persons and in the future can have their own business and improve their quality of life.
Actualmente Lilian solicita ayuda para compra de fertilizante, abono, para su cultivo de café ya que de esa forma ella podrá mejorar su cosecha y evitara que se contamine por la roya enfermedad que daña y destruye los cultivos de café en su totalidad de ser afectados.
Su meta es poder cancelar su préstamo para que de esa forma pueda seguir trabajando y seguir mejorando su cultivo. Sus sueños como toda madre de familia es darles a sus hijos una mejor educación, para que de esa forma tengan mejores oportunidades de empleo, sean personas emprendedoras y que algún día ellos puedan tener su propio negocio y mejoren su estilo y su calidad de vida.
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.
