She’s in a common law relationship and she and her spouse work growing vegetables and basic grains like potatoes, corn and beans. Her relationship has produced two children who are minors, the oldest is three and the other one is two-and-a-half. She has much experience because her parents taught her to work the land when she was a little girl. She also works in commerce selling tortillas in the local market. Her spouse supports her in all aspects and he takes care of all crop maintenance when she’s away selling tortillas.
At present, she’s asking for a loan to invest in the potato crop; she will buy fertilizer, manure and a pump to fumigate her product to keep it healthy and free of infestations.
Her dream is to be able to improve her house and grow more vegetables but her priority is to see her children become professionals with a better education and a better future because she doesn’t want them to go through the same situation she did.
Actualmente ella solicita ayuda para poder invertir en la siembra de papa, compra de fertilizantes, abono y una bomba para fumigación a su producto para que ayude a mantenerlo sano y limpio de plagas.
Su sueño es poder mejorar su vivienda y cultivar más hortaliza; pero la prioridad de ella es ver a sus hijos convertidos en profesionales teniendo una mejor educación y a sí mismo un mejor futuro ya que ella no quiere que pasen por la misma situación que ella paso.
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.
