Lourdes Graciela
Doña Lourdes is 37 years old, a mother of five children, and completed her education up to the fifth grade of primary school. In the company of her partner, they work the land. Both have been coffee growers for many years; their parents taught them. The land that they work is their own, thanks to effort put forth for many years. The land is close to their house and they walk the distance daily. Since they are in the company of their children, they are only involved in different jobs in the countryside, like cleaning, cutting, fertilizing, etc. Their customers are the intermediaries who come to the area to acquire a good product, their neighbors, and their friends in the surrounding areas.

Doña Lourdes has asked COMIXMUL for financial support that would allow her to buy supplies like leaf fertilizer, manure, and fertilizer in order to maintain her coffee crops. Her plans for the future are to have her crops engineered and to be able to increase them a little more so that she can generate greater income for her home and her family since agriculture is her only means of income for covering the different household expenses, like food, clothing, and medicine with restrictions, among other things.

En compañía de su pareja trabajan la tierra ambos son caficultores desde hace muchos años y fueron sus padres los que les enseñaron. La tierra que trabajan es propia gracias al esfuerzo puesto por muchos años las cuales quedan cerca de su casa a la cual diariamente se trasladan a pie siendo ellos en compañía de sus hijos los únicos involucrados en las diferentes actividades del campo como ser: limpieza, corte, abono, fertilización, entre otras. Sus clientes son los intermediarios que llegan a la zona por la adquisición de un buen producto, los vecinos y amigos de las zonas aledañas.

Doña Lourdes ha solicitado a COMIXMUL un apoyo financiero el cual le permita comprar insumos como: foliares, abono, fertilizantes para darle mantenimiento a sus cultivos de café.

Sus planes en un futuro es tener sus cultivos tecnificados y poder ampliarlos un poco más para poder generar mayores ingresos para su hogar y su familia ya que la agricultura es su único medio de ingreso para cubrir los diferentes gastos en el hogar como: la alimentación, vestimenta, medicina con muchas restricciones, entre otros.

More information about this loan

These loans are designed for women who live in communities that do not have electricity, and where the government does not plan to install electricity for at least five years. This financing enables them to purchase solar panels ranging from 36 to 75 watts. COMIXMUL has partnered with an established solar company in Honduras to install the panels and provide maintenance when required. The panels themselves are guaranteed for 25 years. Historically, COMIXMUL has had significant demand for this product that it has been unable to meet. Thanks to Kiva, COMIXMUL will be able to expand access to solar technology to more borrowers.
