Maria Lilian
María, 40, is a hard-working woman who has many dreams and hopes for her son. She is a farmer and works with her common-law husband and son growing corn, beans and coffee. She has been in business for many years, having learned farming from her parents when she was very young. She was unable to get an education because her parents could not pay for it.

María is requesting a loan through COMIXMUL to buy fertilizers, prepare the crop land and set up a new coffee greenhouse.

Her future plans include renovating her house which needs new plaster on the walls and a new floor. She also wants to change the variety of coffee she is growing to make it more competitive at the market. Her goal is to give her son a better future by strengthening the business she has today together with her husband.

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.
