She and her brother are farmers. They have grown potatoes and vegetables for a long time because their parents taught them to work the land, and agriculture's a tradition in their family. She also grows corn and beans in the cold weather.
She's grateful to God that she has her own plot of land to farm. It's located across from her house, so her maintenance is more constant. Only she and her brother are involved.
She has requested a loan from the COMIXMUL cooperative because she's going to buy certified potato seed with soil amendments and fertilizer to maintain her current crops as well as the ones she plans to grow.
With this purchase she plans to extend her crops a little more, sell more to her customers, and generate greater income for her family. Her dreams are to be able to give her children a good education and a better life.

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.
