Rosalina
Rosalina, 29, is a young woman with a lot of energy and desire to get ahead. She got as far as the sixth grade but was unable to continue her education because her parents could not afford it. She is married and has three children, two of whom are in school and the youngest still at home. From a very early age, Rosalina's parents taught her about agriculture; and now she grows coffee, alongside her husband, and handles mainly the cleaning, trimming and fertilizing of the crop. For ten years she and her husband have been working on their own land which they inherited from her parents-in-law. It is two kilometers from their house and they feel blessed by having a car to get there.

She is currently requesting a loan to buy fertilizers and other products to avoid plant disease and contamination.

Her goal is to insure her coffee crop is productive every year so she can give her children a good education and a better quality of life. She wants them to have the opportunity to study and lead a better lifestyle. Coffee production is the only means of income for the family.

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.
