Sabas
Sabas is a reserved person, 33 years old, married with four children and her eldest daughter is already married, and at home there are two more attending school and the youngest is in primary.

She has an elementary school education through the fourth grade and could not continue due to the lack of financial support from her parents. It was from them that she learned to work the land growing coffee from a very early age.

Today she is asking for help in order to buy supplies to maintain her coffee crops which are to be cleaned, to apply foliar to avoid infestations, and the crops will be fertilized.

Her dreams are to use technology on her land where she grows coffee, in order to improve the yield of production so she can make it more appealing to her customers and thus continue earning income for her family and continue supporting her three children who are still studying.

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.
