Orbelina has a complete primary education which she was able to finish thanks to her parents' help who worked hard to give her a primary education so that she could learn the basics as they had little financial resources and couldn't continue helping her. It was her parents who showed her at a young age how to sow and cultivate coffee, which she continues to this day as it is another means of earning an income for her family to cover needs such as the basic grocery basket, clothing, medicine and so on. Orbelina also makes her living in sales, setting up a small grocery store which she saw as necessary given that the demand in the field is low in the area in which she lives. Thanks to the effort put in by her husband and herself, they were able to purchase a plot of land at 1.5 km for their home which they get to on foot. Her coffee product is bought by neighbors, middlemen who come to the area where she lives to purchase it.
Orbelina is currently seeking help to buy fertilizers, manure and irrigation pumps for her coffee plantations as it is through this mean that she will be able to better care for her product and keep it free from infestations and illnesses such as rust which damages this crop.
Orbelina's dream is that her crops are the most productive and best sold as it is in this way that she will generate an income for her family and give her children a better education so that they can study honorable degrees at university level and so that they take over the property and use their knowledge to make it grow.
Actualmente ella solicita ayuda para la compra de fertilizantes, abonos y bombas de riego para sus cultivos de café ya que por medio de esto ella podrá darle una mejor asistencia a su producto y podrá mantenerlo alejado de las plagas y enfermedades como la roya la cual daña este cultivo.
Su sueño es que sus cultivos sean los mas productivos y vendidos ya que de esa manera podrá generar ingresos para su familia y podrá darles una mejor educación a sus hijos para que ellos puedan estudiar carreras de provecho a nivel universitario y puedan hacerse cargo de la propiedad y puedan implementar los conocimientos y hacerla crecer.
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.
