Blanca Delia
Blanca is a 30-year-old married woman and the mother of three children. She completed her secondary education. Blanca has been a farmer for a long time and, together with her husband, she grows coffee which she sells in surrounding areas to different buyers and middlemen, and also in the local market. Blanca learned this business alongside her husband and they are the only two people who carry out all the tasks on their land including irrigation, maintenance, weeding, etc.

Blanca is requesting help to buy fertilizers, manure and other products she needs to maintain her coffee crops and improve her harvest. Her future goals are to expand the area of land on which she grows her crops and to sow a variety of grains so that she can grow her business. She hopes to improve her income for her family's sake and, above all, to make enough income to provide her children with a better education and send them to university.

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.
