Nokeira Marilu
Nokeira is a 29 year old woman. She is single and takes care of her home and grows coffee. Her father, who grew coffee his whole life, left her some property so she could work and generate income to support herself and cover her expenses. She lives with her mother, who taught her to be an honest and hardworking person, since she is an example for her whole family and the community. Nokeira finished primary school and was unable to keep going to school due to a lack of resources.

Now Nokeira is asking for help to buy fertilizer, manure, and fumigation pumps, which will help her to keep her crop healthy and free of any pests or diseases that can destroy it, such as blight.

Her goal is to have a good harvest that will allow her to generate income and make her dream come true of having a micro-business which will be to buy coffee and sell it ground up for consumption, to add to her crops.

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.
