Mariana De Jesus
She was able to study up to the fourth grade of elementary school. She wasn't able to continue because her parents couldn't help economically. They were the ones who taught her how to work the land at a young age, however. She and her husband and two children go every day to take care of their coffee crops. Her oldest son isn't involved because he lives abroad in the United States and helps her by sending remittances so they can cover the school and household expenses such as food, medicines with a lot of limitations, etc.
She has asked COMIXMUL for a loan to buy inputs such as urea, fertilizer, soil amendments, foliar applications, and other things to protect her plants from insects and diseases like blight.
Her dreams are to give her children a good education so they can choose high school and college courses that will help them in life as individuals, as entrepreneurs, and even as fathers and mothers.
Ella ha solicitado un financiamiento a COMIXMUL para la compra de insumos como: urea, fertilizantes, abono, foliares entre otros que protegen a sus cultivos de bichos y enfermedades como la roya.
Sus sueños son los de darle una buena educación a sus hijos que ellos puedan escoger carreras de secundaria y a nivel superior que les puedan ayudar en la vida como personas, como empresarios y hasta como padres y madres de familia.
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.
