Mariana De Jesus
Mariana de Jesús, 48, is the mother of three children. She has been a housewife and farmer for many years. She and her husband work with a lot of effort to get ahead.

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.

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.
