Norma has a lot of experience working in agriculture, because her parents taught her to work the land from the time that she was very young. She learned through family tradition how to grow coffee. The land that she and her partner cultivate is their own, thanks to an inheritance from their parents. The land is located 300 meters from the house where they live. Norma walks there each day along with her partner and children to care for and maintain her coffee crops.
Norma is now requesting help to buy organic and chemical fertilizers to maintain her crops, since with this support she will be able to protect her coffee plants. With these supplies they will be more resistant to pests and other threats.
Norma's dream is to continue improving her crops so that she can increase the size, variety and quality of her harvests. She says that her children are her greatest priority – especially their studies – but also all of the other things that come up daily that her family needs or that can improve their quality of life.
Hoy en día ella solicita ayuda para la compra de abono y fertilizantes para el mantenimiento de sus cultivos ya que con este apoyo podrá proteger sus cultivos de café ya que de esa forma estará más seguro de plagas entre otros.
Su sueños es mejorar día a día sus cultivos poder incrementar un poco más sus cosechas en variedad y calidad ya que sus hijos son la prioridad más grande, sus estudios y otras necesidades que diariamente se presentan para el mejoramiento de su familia.
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.
