She learned to work the land from a very young age because agriculture, especially growing coffee, is a tradition in her family; it was a job for her parents and is now for her own family. Her crops are located about 10 meters from her house, so it's easy for her to take care of and maintain them. As with everything in life she has challenges, such as falling prices, natural disasters, and the lack of maintenance because products are expensive and out of her reach.
This is why she's currently requesting a loan from the COMIXMUL cooperative to be able to buy the inputs she needs for her coffee crops, to take care of everything so she can have an excellent harvest.
Her goal is to be able to take care of her crops, because otherwise she can lose her entire harvest as well as the time and money invested in it. Her dream is to be able to support her children in their studies and their lives, and to see them grow and become people of substance.
Por lo que hoy en día ha solicitado un financiamiento a la cooperativa COMIXMUL para poder comprar los insumos necesarios para sus cultivos de café y así poder dar la asistencia que necesitan para poder obtener una excelente cosecha.
Su meta es poder asistir sus cultivos ya que de no hacerlo ella puede perder su cosecha en su totalidad más el tiempo invertido y el dinero. Su sueño es poder apoyar a sus hijos en sus estudios, en su vida y verlos crecer y convertirse en hombres de provecho.
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.
