Edit Marleny
Edit, 38, is the mother of three children who depend on her and her husband in all aspects of life. She completed her primary education, which she was able to finish thanks to the effort, dedication and support that her parents offered her. But she was unable to continue due to a lack of economic support.

She has a lot of experience in agricultural work since her parents taught her from a very young age how to work land where vegetables, as well as coffee, was grown. Her clients are the different buyers that come to the area and also warehouses in the urban area where her products are sold directly.

Her husband is a primary school teacher and is the only support she has to help her succeed. Their crops are located 100 meters from their home, where they go daily on foot to provide technical assistance in order to prevent damage from being done to their harvests.

Today she is requesting help for the purchase of supplies such as fertilizer, compost, foliar fertilizer (fertilizer that is absorbed through leaves), and more for the maintenance of her crops since, with this support, she will be able to protect her coffee and vegetable crops and will be ensured against pests, among other things.

Her dream is to improve her crops day by day and be able to increase the variety and quality of her harvests a little more.

Her children are her biggest priority, including their studies and other needs that present themselves daily and will lead to the betterment of her family.

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.
