Ilda Marilu
Ilda is 26 years old, she is married and mother to two children who are youngsters and depend on her and her husband. She has a complete primary education up to sixth grade and she makes her living growing vegetables such as potatoes, broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce and cabbage. This was an activity instilled in her by her parents from a young age. The land that Ilda and her husband work is their own thanks to an inheritance from her in-laws. The produce is sold in the local market and sold to the different intermediaries who come to the area.

Ilda is seeking help to invest in her potato crop, to buy fertilizers and manure to strengthen the plant, its roots and the land in which it is planted.

Her plans for the future are to be able to improve her crops, introducing an irrigation system to keep the product healthy and well fed, as well as to continue nurturing but in terms of quantity and quality to offer more to her customers.

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.
