Luisa
Luisa is 44 years old, married, and the mother of two children who live at home and depend on her and her husband for everything. She has a third-grade education and has farmed and planted coffee for her whole life, as her parents are farmers and it was them who taught her to work the land. The lands that she works are her own and when it comes to tending the land, only she and her husband are involved in the maintenance of the coffee crops such as cleaning, cutting, fertilizing, irrigating, etc.

She now wants to avoid harm to her crops, which, so far, are doing well, in case of plagues or plant illnesses such as pests, and she needs to fertilize and put down compost because this will keep her crops as safe and strong, both the plants and the beans.

Her plans for the future is to make her farming more technical to maintain better production and a better and more secure bean for sale because this is how she will be able to give her children an excellent education through income from coffee sales.

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.
