She and her parents are farmers; they grow coffee, corn, and beans. Her biggest challenge is having a healthy crop that's protected from pests and diseases such as Roya [coffee rust disease] and Broca [coffee berry borer], because in the market the supplies to attack this type of crop danger are expensive and the prices unstable.
The land she and her parents farm is their own. Located 30 minutes from their home, they go there to maintain it and provide technical help.
She has requested a loan from the COMIXMUL cooperative to buy soil amendments, urea, coffee formula, fertilizer, etc. This way she can provide better help and greater protection as well as maintain her crops.
Her goals are to graduate from college, help her parents as she has done up to the present, and have productive coffee crops that generate jobs and other things that appeal to her customers and other buyers in the area.
Por lo tanto ella ha solicitado a la cooperativa COMIXMUL un financiamiento con el cual pretende dar una mejor asistencia y mayor protección como también el mantenimiento a sus cultivos de café comprando abono, urea, formula cafetalera, fertilizantes, etc.
Sus metas son graduarse en la universidad apoyar a sus padres como hasta hoy en día lo ha hecho y ver que sus cultivos de café son productivos, generadores de empleo y atractivos para sus clientes y demás compradores de la zona.
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.
