Erlin Maria
Erlin is a hardworking, entrepreneurial young woman of 29 years of age. She is a single mother of 2 children who live with her and depend entirely on her for support. She finished her primary education and then couldn't continue her studies because her parents were not able to support her financially. Her parents taught her how to work in agriculture, which continues to be the way she earns a living for herself, her parents and her children. The family works together on different agricultural activities as they support the family by farming. Their crops are marketed and sold in local markets on a small scale by the different vendors in the area.

Currently Erlin is asking for help to buy agricultural inputs, which will improve her coffee and vegetable crops. In this way she will be sure to have a good harvest and crops.

Her plans and goals for the future are to expand her crops by buying more land, since 2 little ones depend on her. Her dream is to see them go to university and avoid them going through the same things that she experienced in her youth.

Erlin es una mujer luchadora, emprendedora y joven de 29 años de edad madre soltera de 2 hijos los cuales viven con y dependen de ella en todos los aspectos. Ella tiene un grado de educación primario completo y no pudo seguir estudiando por la falta de apoyo económico por parte de sus padres. Fueron ellos los que le enseñaron dicha actividad hace un tiempo y que hasta hoy en día es medio de ingreso para sus padres, para ella y sus hijos. Las diferentes actividades en sus cultivos son elaboradas por la familia ya que juntos son apoyo mutuo en la agricultura como unión familiar. Su producto es comercializado y vendido en el mercado local en pequeña escala con los diferentes vendedores de la zona.

Actualmente ella solicita ayuda para la compra de insumos que mejoraran sus cultivos de café y hortaliza ya que por medio de esto ella podrá asegurar sus cosechas y el producto.

Sus planes y metas a futuro son de ampliar sus cultivos comprando mas tierra en la que ella pueda trabajar ya que de ella dependen 2 pequeños y sus sueño es verlos realizados y estudiados a nivel universitario evitando que no pasen por lo mismo que ella paso en su juventud.

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.
