Olimpia
Olimpia is a hard-working, enterprising young woman who's only 28 years old. She has two children who attend different grades of elementary school. She lives with them and her husband in a solid, very well-established household. She has completed elementary school, which she was able to do through a great deal of effort and sacrifice thanks to the support provided by her parents. For many generations her entire family has worked in farming, specifically growing coffee. Her generation is no exception, since the area where she lives is very suitable for sowing and growing coffee because of its soil and its pleasant weather. The plot of land where she sows was acquired through her parents and there they were able to build their home. This allows them to be on top of things regarding their crops and their produce.

She currently requests help to maintain and take care of her crops by purchasing compost, fertilizer and other supplies that ensure and improve her coffee plants and production.

Her plan is to continue expanding her crop, since the land she inherited from her parents is large and she could grow a wider variety of produce to offer her customers. That way she'll be able to earn profits for her family and her children, and provide them with a college education.

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.
