Martha Lidia
Martha is a 29-year-old woman, enterprising, hard working, and with a lot of desire to get ahead. She is married and with the help of her husband and her family she works in the cultivation and product of coffee. Her family has practiced this activity for generations. Her land is very appropriate for the crops because they are located in a fertile area and free of contamination. She has achieved and completed her projects due to her perseverance and hard work. She works hard to such a degree that her husband, children, friends, and neighbors admire her. She is also working to educate her son who is in primary school.

Currently she is requesting a loan to purchase fertilizer, manure, and other supplies that will avoid her crops being damaged by diseases. She wants to gain 100% of the crops without damage so she can sell them.

Her goal is to increase her land to be able to seed and harvest coffee. Her dream is to give her son a better education, a better standard of life, and be able to inherit what his parents earned with a lot of hard work from generation to generation.

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.
