As a young girl Marta learned about growing coffee from her parents who taught her how to look after the land. Now she and her husband work as coffee farmers; he is the only person who helps her with weeding, pruning, and fertilizing, so they don’t pay any labourers. Marta has been a farmer for more than five years. The land they work is their own as they inherited it from her husband’s parents. It’s located about two kilometres from their house, and they walk there every day.
Now Marta is seeking a loan to buy fertilizer and manure for the coffee plants as the product they use is expensive and difficult to acquire. Her goal is to have her fields produce more and keep the plants healthy so that she can earn more money. Then she will be able to reinvest in the coffee fields; this is the only means she has of earning money to support her family.
Marta’s dream is to see her children graduate from university so that they can have a better standard of living, more income, and benefit from the effort that their parents put in today on the land. This is the land that they will one day inherit and can use to create companies and businesses to generate employment for others.
Actualmente solicita ayuda para la compra de fertilizante, abonos para el cultivo de café ya que el producto que utilizan para sus cultivos es caro y lee es difícil adquirirlo.
Su meta es que sus cultivos sigan produciendo más y se mantengan sanos para poder obtener mejores ganancias y de esa forma poder re invertir en sus cultivos ya que es el único medio de ingreso y sustento para su familia. Su sueño es poder ver a sus hijos graduados a nivel universitario para que ellos tengan un mejor estilo de vida, mejores ingresos y puedan aprovechar el esfuerzo que hoy en día sus padres hacen con la tierra misma que sera heredada a ellos en un futuro para crear empresas o negocios que generen empleo a otros.
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.
