It was her parents who taught her from a very early age how to cultivate coffee: planting, pruning, fertilization, harvesting, and how to mechanize the operations. She is infinitely grateful to her parents for having taught her how to farm, since this has been the means of sustenance for her family. At present, this activity allows her to cover her basic household expenses such as food, clothing, medicine and the like.
Currently she is seeking assistance so that she can buy fertilizer and compost in order to maintain her coffee crops. This will allow her to keep her crops healthy and free of weeds and any crop disease.
Her goal is to continue studying at the university level, since this will give her the technical knowledge she needs in order to expand her crops. Her dream is for her daughter to graduate from college so that she can create her own future and be able to make decisions that will help her grow as a person and have a better life.
Actualmente ella solicita ayuda para la compra de fertilizante y abono para el mantenimiento de su cultivo de café ya que esto permitirá que se mantenga sano y limpio de cualquier plaga y enfermedad.
Su meta es seguir estudiando a nivel universitario ya que por medio de esto ella podrá escoger una carrera que le brinde el conocimiento necesario para hacer crecer técnicamente sus cultivos. Su sueño es lograr graduar a su hija a un nivel universitario para que ella pueda crear su futuro y pueda tomar decisiones que mejoren su vida y su persona.
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.
