Digna completed primary school through sixth grade. She wasn't able to continue because of her parents' lack of economic resources, as they were not able to earn much from their agricultural work. It was her parents who, from an early age, taught her the business of planting and cultivating coffee, corn, and beans.
Thanks to the hard work that the family has put in, over time Digna and her husband have been able to save to prepare a plot of land that was inherited by her in-laws. It's located 50 meters from her house so they can walk there. They are planning to grow coffee, a product that is abundant in the region where she lives. It's easy to grow because the soil is rich in minerals and other nutrients that make this a reliable crop.
Currently, Digna is requesting help to be able to buy coffee seeds and certified plants to cultivate on her property in order to generate income for her family; this income will help to cover the cost of basic household goods and other expenses like clothing, medicines, etc.
Her goal is to be able to grow coffee on the property she has in order to make money, using the proceeds to keep investing and to pay back the loan with the institution so that she can continue enjoying the products it offers. Her dream is to be able to continue supporting her children in their educations so that they can graduate and achieve every one of their goals, as well as to learn the trade and someday be able to inherit and manage all she has sacrificed for.

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.
