Elia Humbertina
Elia is 54 years old. She is a fighter who is enterprising and grateful to God and who has a desire to improve and succeed. She is married and has five children who are all adults. She has a granddaughter in kindergarten who depends on her since her parents live in the United States. She went to school through fourth grade and could not continue due to a lack of financial support since her parents had limited resources and could not support her.

Since her childhood, she has worked cultivating coffee. Her family did this work and today it supports her family. Her parents taught her to work the land more than twenty years ago and now she works with her husband. Their land was purchased after many years of sacrifice to save and purchase the land they cultivate today. It is located two kilometers away from her house and she walks there every day.

Currently she is requesting help to purchase fertilizer and manure to maintain her coffee crops so that she has a healthy and profitable harvest that generates income and profits so that she can continue investing.

Her dream is to start a business that will give value to her coffee crops such as packaging them and selling them in the market. This would allow her to improve her income so that she could continue expanding her crops, and it would be an inheritance for her children to continue working and pass from generation to generation.

Elia es una mujer con 54 años de edad luchadora, emprendedora y agradecida con DIOS, con muchos deseos de superarse y de salir adelante casada y madre de 5 hijos los cuales son adultos y de ella solo depende una nieta la cual estudia en el kinder y los papás viven en E.E.U.U. Ella tiene un grado de educación no completado cursado hasta el 4 grado y no pudo continuar por la falta de apoyo económico ya que sus padres son de bajos recursos y no pudieron apoyarla. Desde su niñez se ha dedicado al cultivo de café actividad practicada por su familia hasta hoy en día siendo este el único sustento ya que fueron sus padres los que le enseñaron a trabajar la tierra hace más de 20 años y en la actualidad sigue practicando con su esposo. La tierra que juntos en familia trabajan fue comprada por ellos después de muchos años de sacrificio pudieron ahorrar y comprar la tierra que hoy cultivan la cual está ubicada a 2 kilómetros de distancia de su casa de habitación a la cual se trasladan a pie diariamente.

Actualmente solicita ayuda para la compra de fertilizantes, abonos para darle mantenimiento a sus cultivos de café esto para que sea una cosecha sana y provechosa para poder generar ingresos, obtener ganancias y poder seguir invirtiendo en la misma.

Su sueño es poder emprender un negocio el cual sirva para dar un valor agregado a sus cultivos de café como un empaque y poder venderlo en el mercado para de esa forma mejorar sus ingresos para seguir ampliando sus siembras y que sea herencia para que sus hijos puedan seguir trabajando y pasar de generación a generación.

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.
