She only has a fifth grade education. She was not able to finish because of the lack of financial support from her parents. She also has a small grocery store, which is another means of income that helps her cover some of the household expenses like food, some medications, and clothing, among other things.
One of the challenges that people working in agriculture have is the rise of the prices of the agricultural supplies they use to take care of and maintain their crops. That is why she has requested a financial support from COMIXMUL. The loan is to be able to buy what she needs and to clear the pests from her harvests, avoiding contagious illnesses and others.
Her dreams are to see her children grow and become professionals with university degrees. She wants to see them with their own businesses or small businesses that help with their own growth and that of their families.
Uno de los desafíos que las personas que se dedican a la agricultura tienen es la alza de los precios en cuanto a los insumos agrícolas que utilizan para dar asistencia técnica y mantenimiento a sus cultivos por lo cual ella ha solicitado a COMIXMUL un apoyo económico para poder comprar lo necesario y limpiar de plagas sus cosechas evitando que sean contagiadas con enfermedades y otras.
Sus sueños es ver a sus hijos crecer y verlos convertidos en profesionales, con carreras universitarias, con sus propios negocios o micro empresas que ayuden al desarrollo propio y el de sus familias.
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.
