She has been working in agriculture alongside her husband for 12 years in the planting and cultivation of corn and besides that activity she also works raising and selling pigs and in basic grains (corn) that is distributed for sale in warehouses, grocery stores and other businesses. Her crops are located three miles from her home which she walks daily.
Today she is is asking for help to buy corn in order to cultivate it to sell as it is one of the ways other than selling pigs that generates income for the family and to be able to help her husband with the basic household expenses and some for school fees and clothing for her children.
Her goal and strategy is to grow a little more corn in order to improve sales. She is asking for help because she needs to buy corn seed as her product now does not generate enough because certified corn seed is expensive.
Her dream is to see her children graduate from university with a career so they can reap a benefit and also that they can make use of it day by day having the strength to get ahead and be better each day.
Hoy en día ella solicita ayuda para la compra de maíz y poderlo cultivar para su venta ya que es uno de los medios a parte de la venta de cerdos que genera ingresos para su familia y poder ayudar a su esposo con los gastos de la canasta básica y otros como los estudios de sus hijos y la vestimenta.
Su meta y estrategia es poder cultivar un poco mas de maíz para poder mejorar sus ventas mediante el apoyo que hoy solicita ya que necesita comprar semilla de maíz y lo que su producto hoy le genera no es suficiente ya que esta semilla de manera certificada es cara. Su sueño es ver a sus hijos graduados universitaria mente con una carrera que ellos puedan sacar provecho y que ademas de eso aprovechen que hoy por hoy tiene fuerzas para sacarlos adelante y ser mejores cada día.
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.
