Maria Angela
María is a 35 year old woman. She is young, a fighter, enterprising and really wants to get ahead. She is in a common law marriage and has a big family with six children. The three oldest are in primary school. 2 aren't in school and one is a newborn. She doesn't have any education and was unable to go to school because her parents were of low income. They were the ones who taught her to work the land since she was very small. For 5 years, she has worked with her spouse at this activity. They land she plants with her spouse is their own since it was inherited from one of her parents. It is located 70 meters from her house and they walk there every day.

Today Ana is asking for help to buy manure and fertilizer for her coffee crops so she can have a healthy crop that she can benefit from 100%.

Her dreams are to see her children finish college and have better opportunities in life and in work. Working the land is very difficult and the profits are low.

Fueron ellos los que le enseñaron a trabajar la tierra desde muy pequeña y tiene 5 años de dedicarse junto a su pareja esta actividad. El terreno que ella junto a su pareja cultivan es propio ya que fue una herencia de parte de sus padres el cual está ubicado a 70 metros de su casa de habitación al cual se trasladan a pie diariamente.

Hoy en día Ana solicita ayuda para la compra de abono y fertilizantes para su cultivo de café por medio del cual podrá obtener una cosecha sana y la podrá aprovechar al 100%.

Sus sueños son los de ver a sus hijos culminados a nivel universitario, que tengan mejores oportunidades en la vida, mejores oportunidades de empleo ya que el trabajo de la tierra es muy 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.
