She finished elementary school and is grateful to her parents for the support they gave her so she could have a basic knowledge. They have limited resources and were unable to continue helping her. They were the ones who taught her to grow coffee from a very young age. Currently she has more than 30 years of experience doing this job with her husband.
In addition to being a coffee grower she also works in retail making bread. She makes it with one of her children and sells it in the area where she lives.
Currently she's requesting help to buy soil amendments and fertilizer for her coffee crop and the nursery she's setting up. She hopes to get a healthy harvest and be able to make the most of it 100%.
Her dreams are to see her children finish college and have better opportunities in life and employment, because working the land is very difficult and there's not a lot of profit.
Hoy en día solicita ayuda para la compra de abono y fertilizantes para su cultivo de café y el vivero que está poniendo en pie 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.
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.
