Maria Amparo
Doña María Amparo is 45 years old and the mother of one child. She lives with her husband and son in a house of their own. María Amparo completed her primary school education through the sixth grade, thanks in part to the support of her parents and also to the effort she put into her studies. She has been growing coffee for more than 10 years. María Amparo learned this business from her parents since her family has done this for many years and over several generations. She travels every day with her husband and son to the place where their crops are located. They must maintain the crops in order to prevent damage caused by diseases and pests.


María Amparo is requesting assistance so that she can buy supplies for maintaining her crops. She needs to weed, fertilize, and feed the coffee plants, which will provide total care for producing coffee beans. Her goal is to fertilize and maintain her crops in the same manner that she has always done to this point. This will help her achieve a secure and quality harvest.


Her dreams as a mother are to support her son as he continues his studies and to see him graduate to the university level.

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.
