Erlin Suyapa
Erlin is 26 years old. She has a partner and is a mother to three children. They all live together as a family. Erlin completed up to the end of sixth year at primary school and has been working in farming since her childhood. Her parents, and generations before them, have been farmers and Erlin is no exception. Erlin and her partners are the only ones working on their crops, growing corn, beans and coffee. This work provided an income for her parents and continues to generate an income for Erlin. Her clients include various grocery stores and wholesalers who come to the area looking for supplies.

Today Erlin is applying for help to buy supplies and manure for her corn crops. With it she will be able to have a better harvest and more profit to reinvest and to pay off her loan.

Erlin's plan is to grow a variety of crops to sell, such as chillis, beetroot and more. She can then earn a higher income for her family and buy cattle in order to sell dairy products such as cheese, butter and curd. Erlin will then be able to guarantee an education for her children.

Erlin es una joven de 26 años de edad, en un estado civil de unión libre y madre de 3 hijos los cuales viven en familia todos juntos. Ella curso hasta el 6 grado de la primaria y es agricultora desde su infancia ya que sus padres son agricultores por generaciones y la de ella no es la excepción. Son ella y su pareja los únicos involucrados en el cultivo de maíz, frijol y café actividades que han sido ingreso para su familia (padres) y siguen siéndolo en la actualidad para la de ella. Sus clientes son las diferentes bodegas, pulperías e intermediarios que llegan a la zona en busca del producto.

Hoy en día ella solicita ayuda para la compra de insumos y abonos para la siembra de maíz ya que por medio de esto ella podrá tener una mejor cosecha y mejores ganancias para re-invertir y salir de su compromiso.

Sus planes son cultivar una variedad que no los límite para su comercio como Chile, remolacha entre otros y puedan generar mayores ingresos para su familia, así como los de comprar ganado para distribuir los derivados de la leche como el queso, la mantequilla, cuajada, etc. ya que así ella podrá asegurar la educación de sus hijos.

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.
