She and her family have cultivated potatoes for a long time. Her parents taught her how to cultivate them and also how to sell them at the local market and in surrounding areas. She also cultivates basic grains on a small scale, part of which she sells at the same time, while she keeps the other part for family consumption. The land that she and her husband cultivate is their own, thanks to their many years of work and sacrifice. It is located 20 meters from their home, which enables them to keep their crops well cared for and healthy.
She is currently requesting help to purchase compost, fertilizer and foliar applications in order to provide more and better care for her crops. Thus she will be able to capitalize on the best harvest possible.
Her short term goals are to increase yields so that she can harvest more and generate more income in order to cover the costs of school, food, clothing and medicine for her children’s well being. Her dream is to continue supporting her children’s education so they can graduate and study for good careers at the university in the future.
Actualmente solicita ayuda para la compra de abono, fertilizantes y foliares para dar una mejor y mayor asistencia a sus cultivos ya que por medio de esto ella podrá aprovechar su cosecha al máximo.
Sus metas a corto plazo son de poder aumentar sus cosechas para producir más y generar más ingresos para cubrir los gastos de estudio, alimentación, vestimenta, medicina para el bienestar de sus hijos. Su sueño es seguir apoyando a sus hijos en la parte educativa para que ellos puedan graduarse y estudiar una carrera universitaria de provecho en el futuro.
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.
