Jenni Roxana
Jenni is a married young woman of 21. With a lot of hard work and a lot of dreams this mother of one son makes a living planting and growing basic grains (rice, corn and beans). She graduated from school with a lot of effort and sacrifice thanks to the support of her parents, who taught her about farming for many years, since it has been the family's livelihood for generations and still is to this day. Jenni and her family rent the land they cultivate, and her house was inherited from her husband's parents. The land they work on is four kilometers from where they live, and they go either by foot or by bike every day. Jenni sells her products to the different intermediaries who come to the community to acquire goods. She is requesting the loan to purchase fertilizers and manure for her crops so they stay free of plagues and diseases that can destroy entire harvests if they are not treated in time. Jenni's dream is to be able to have her own land so she can work on her own without having to pay rent and so her profits will be 100 percent hers and she can continue working to give a better future to her family and her son.

Additional Information

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.
