Currently she and her husband are each other's mutual support to get ahead, which their children depend on. The coffee crop is about 200 meters from her house, so she walks there.
Dominga's requesting help to buy fertilizer, manure, and fumigation bombs to maintain her coffee crop. If she doesn't take care of the crop in time it can become damaged by the blight that especially affects this type of crop.
She dreams of educating her children so they have a better quality of life and better job opportunities. Working the land is difficult and with so much environmental contamination and the lack of materials, the profit is very small. With the loan, however, she'll be able to prepare and strengthen her crop and have an excellent harvest.
Doña Dominga está solicitando ayuda para compra de fertilizante, abono, bombas de fumigación para el mantenimiento de su cultivo de café, mismo que si no se le da mantenimiento y cuidado a tiempo puede ser dañado por la roya enfermedad que afecta especial mente esta clase de cultivo.
Ella sueña con educar a sus hijos para que tengan una mejor calidad de vida, mejores oportunidades de empleo ya que el trabajo de la tierra es muy pesado y con tanta contaminación ambiental y la falta de materiales para el cuido, las ganancias que quedan son pocas, pero de esta forma ella podrá preparar y fortalecer su cultivo y tener una excelente cosecha.
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.
