Ana Mildres
Ana is 38 years old, married and is both a housewife and farmer. She has worked in agriculture ever since she was a young girl when her parents taught her about the land where she now grows coffee, corn, and beans. Ana has four children. The eldest attended school for nine years, the second completed primary school, and the last two are in different grades in primary school. A grandson also lives with her.

The land she and her husband work is their own thanks to a purchase from one of their customers some time ago. It is located 15 minutes away by road; sometimes she goes there by horse or donkey.

Ana is seeking a loan from the Comixmul Cooperative so she can pay for technical assistance with her crops. She would like to know more about weeding, fertilization, manure etc. in order to get better harvests.

Her future plan is to be able to grow a better variety of coffee like Bourbon, Caturra, and Lempira so that the beans she grows will be competitive and attractive to local and national markets.

Ana's dream is to see her children attend university and get good jobs.

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.
