At a very early age she learned how to grow chili peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes and other crops. She was not able to continue her education past the second grade due to lack of resources on the part of her parents, since they are of very humble means and did not have the financial capacity to support her.
Farming is the sole activity that sustains her family. Every day they work hard to cover the basic necessities such as food, clothing and medicine. The land that they cultivate is one kilometer from their house, so they go on foot daily to take care of their crops and ensure that they are not contaminated or damaged by the various animals and diseases found in the area.
Currently she is seeking support in order to buy fertilizer and compost for her crops. Her dream is to be able to expand her fields and her harvests in order to increase her family's income. In this way she will be able to provide her children with a better education and a better quality of life so that they will be able to get good jobs.
Actualmente ella solicita ayuda para la compra de fertilizantes, abonos, para sus cultivos de hortaliza. Su sueño es poder incrementar sus cultivos y poder aumentar la cantidad que tiene para obtener mejores ingresos para su familia de esa forma poder darle a sus hijos una mejor educación, un mejor nivel de vida y puedan conseguir buenos empleos.
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.
