Sara
Sara is a 33-year-old married woman with three children who are in different grades of elementary school. Sara was only able to study up to grade 5 because her parents' income was very low and they were not able to keep supporting her, but she is grateful for their hard work. Her family is very humble but hard-working. Her parents taught her to work the land at a very young age, and they handed down a plot of land to her so that she could plant coffee, corn, and beans and obtain an income for her family. The land that her parents left her is located three kilometres from her home, and she travels there on foot every day.
She has now requested a loan from COMIXMUL for the purchase of manure, fertilizer, and other items to prevent her crops from being damaged by pests and other plagues that will spoil entire plantations if not treated in time.
Sara dreams of being the greatest coffee producer in the area with a well-outfitted and fertile plot of land. This way, she will be able to support her children with their studies, their dreams, their goals, and other basic necessities such as food, clothing, and medicine. There are many restrictions on them every day.

Sara es una mujer casada de 33 años de edad madre de 3 hijos los cuales están en la primaria en diferentes grados de educación. Ella solo pudo cursar hasta el 5 grado en la primaria ya que las entradas económicas en sus padres eran muy pocas y no pudieron seguirla apoyando pero agradece el esfuerzo que ellos hicieron ya que su familia es muy humilde pero trabajadora. Fueron sus padres los que le enseñaron a trabajar la tierra a muy temprana edad mismos que le heredaron un pedazo de tierra para que ella pudiese sembrar café, maíz y frijol y obtuviese ingresos para su familia. La tierra que sus padres le heredaron está ubicada a una distancia de 3 kilómetros de distancia de su casa de habitación a la cual se trasladan a pie diariamente.

Ella actualmente ha solicitado un financiamiento a la cooperativa COMIXMUL para poder comprar fertilizantes abono entre otros y evitar que sus cultivos sean dañados por la roya y por otras plagas que destruyen una producción completa de no tratarse a tiempo.

Ella sueña con ser la mejor productora de café en la zona, con su tierra tecnificada y fértil para apoyar a sus hijos con sus estudios, sus sueños, sus metas y otras necesidades básicas como: la alimentación, vestimenta, medicina con muchas restricciones que a diario se presenta.

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.
