She completed elementary school, thanks to her parents’ support. When she was young they taught her to work the land because they had been farmers their whole lives. Her oldest child, who is married, her husband, and she are involved in this business activity. The product that is grown is distributed and sold at the local market and to intermediaries who come to the area in order to resell.

She is currently requesting a loan from COMIXMUL in order to be able to buy quality, certified potato seeds. She will do this in order to be able to cultivate in a more secure and effective manner. Her dream is to buy another piece of land in order to sow on a greater scale. This is because she saves all of the profits that she manages to get in order to fulfill her dream and to continue reinvesting so that it will be possible.

Doña María Ángela tiene 57 años de edad, casada, con un hogar estable por muchos años y madre de 2 hijos los cuales se involucran en el cultivo de hortalizas, maíz, frijol, café, entre otros. Su grado de educación es de primaria completa gracias al apoyo de sus padres mismos que le enseñaron desde joven a trabajar la tierra ya que ellos han sido agricultores desde toda una vida. En esta actividad se involucra su hijo mayor el cual está casado, su esposo y ella misma. EL producto que se cultiva es distribuido y vendido en el mercado local y con intermediarios que llegan a la zona para revender.

Actualmente ella solicita a COMIXMUL un financiamiento para poder comprar semilla de calidad y certificada de papa para poder cultivar ya que es más segura y eficaz.

Sus sueños son los de comprar otro terreno para sembrar en mayor escala ya que cada ganancia que ella logra obtener lo ahorra para poder cumplir su sueño y seguir re-invirtiendo para que sea posible.

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.
