Catalina
Catalina, 47, is married and has six children and feels blessed with the large family she has. She has only a first grade education but much experience in her work since her parents were the ones who taught her the trade. Catalina and her family cultivate the land they were given by her husband's father so they could make a living and support the family and household. The land is 100 meters from their house so they walk there every day to care for the crops.

Catalina is requesting a loan to buy fertilizder and spray pumps for coffee crop maintenance. If she does not provide care and maintenance the crop can be damaged by mildew.

Her goal is to educate her children so they can improve their employment opportunities and have a better quality of life.

Ella tiene un grado de educación primaria no completado ya que solo pudo cursar el primer grado de educación. Ella tiene mucha experiencia ya que se dedica a esta actividad desde hace muchos años y fueron sus padres los que le enseñaron dicha actividad. Hoy en día lo ejerce en compañía de su familia, el terreno que cultivan es propio ya que lo pudieron obtener por medio de una herencia que el papa de su esposo les dio para que trabajaran y pudieran percibir ingresos para poder mantener su familia y hogar. El terreno que ellos trabajan está ubicado a una distancia de 100 metros de su casa de habitación a la cual se trasladan a pie diariamente lo cual les permite dar el mantenimiento a sus cultivos.

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.
