Fidelina
Fidelina is a dynamic young woman. She is 30 years of age, married, and has three children who are dependent on her in all aspects. Fidelina never received an education because she did not have the opportunity to study in her youth. Her parents had limited resources, so they decided to teach her farming rather than send her to school. They instilled in her the skills that she continues to use today. Fidelina has plenty of experience and her husband and children help her with pruning, weeding, and fertilizing the crops. She and her husband own the land they cultivate thanks to both of their efforts. Their farmland is located a few meters from their home, which allows them to always be watchful of their crops so that they can prevent infestation of pests and other problems.


Fidelina is currently requesting a loan in order to buy fertilizers, compost, and other supplies so that she can maintain her coffee crop. This will enable her to protect her crops from infestation so that she can take full advantage of her production. Her dream is to have the most productive crops in the area so that she can provide her children with a better standard of living. She also wants to give her children the best university education so that in the future they will have better opportunities in life since working the land is tiring and the income is minimal.

Fidelina es una mujer joven, dinámica, con 30 años de edad casada que de su matrimonio tiene 3 hijos los cuales dependen de ella en todos los aspectos. Ella no tiene ningún grado de educación ya que no tuvo la oportunidad de estudiar en su juventud sus padres son de escasos recursos económicos y decidió no hacerlo y aprender la agricultura misma que fue inculcada por ellos y que hasta hoy en día siguen practicando. Ella tiene mucha experiencia y en compañía de su esposo e hijos elaboran el corte, limpieza, abono a sus cultivos y fertilización. El terreno que ellos cultivan es propio gracias al esfuerzo impuesto por ambos ubicado a pocos metros de su casa de habitación lo cual les permite estar siempre pendiente de sus cultivos y evitar que se contaminen con plagas y otros.

Actualmente ella solicita ayuda para la compra de Fertilizantes, Abono y otros insumos para darle mantenimiento a su cultivo de café ya que mediante a esto ella podrá prevenir que su cultivo se contamine y de esa forma podrá aprovechar la producción en su totalidad.

Su sueño es que sus cultivos sean los más productivos de la zona para poder darles un mejor nivel de vida a sus hijos, poder educarlos de una mejor manera a nivel universitario para que en el futuro ellos tengan mejores oportunidades en la vida ya que el trabajo de la tierra es pesado y las ganancias son pocas.

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.
