Through her own interest she decided to learn to farm with her parents, who have farmed their entire lives. Her customers are neighbors and intermediaries who come to or live in the area where she lives. She also sells in the local market and in nearby places.
The land that she and her husband and their children farm is her own. She acquired it thanks to one of her customers, who facilitated the sale. It's located in the same place where their house is built.
Currently she needs some economic support to buy inputs to protect her coffee crop, which she'll sell. At the end of the harvest she plans to sell the beans and earn income to re-invest in her crops.
Her plans and dreams for the future are to buy more land to be able to continue growing coffee and offer a better variety, such as caturra and lempira beans, which are competitive products in the market and more attractive for her customers.
Ella actualmente necesita un apoyo económico para la compra de insumos agrícolas para proteger sus cultivos de café con los cuales al final de la cosecha ella planea vender el grano y obtener ingresos para re invertir en sus cultivos.
Los planes y sueños a futuro son los de comprar más tierra para poder seguir cultivando café y ofrecer una mejor variedad como el caturra, lempira, etc. que son productos competitivos en el mercado y más atractivos para sus clientes.
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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
