Maria Argelia
María Argelia, 25, is the mother of a young son who lives with her and his father at home. She finished 9th grade; however, she could not continue because her parents could not pay for additional schooling. They taught her how to grow vegetables such as lettuce, broccoli, and cabbage. She now farms to be able to produce more, as she owns the land and has bought more to add an additional crop, potatoes.

She has applied for a loan to buy certified potato seed, manure, and fertilizer to fortify and maintain her crop, as this is necessary for its growth and health. Her goals are to produce a good potato harvest, to generate a good profit from the crop, and to reinvest, but with less commitments. As a mother, she dreams of helping her son finish his education, among other needs that present themselves along the way.

Fueron ellos los que le enseñaron a trabajar la tierra en el cultivo de hortalizas como ser: lechuga, brócoli, repoyo, etc. En la actualidad ella está trabajando la tierra para poder cultivar más producto ya que las tierras que cultivan son propias y amplias para poder agregar una línea más en la cual ella ha trabajado anteriormente como lo es el cultivo de papa.

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.
