Paula Yesenia
Paula is a young woman of 24 years old. She is a merchant and farmer and has no dependents. She and her spouse work in agriculture; they plant corn, beans and coffee, and sometimes raise pigs. She completed primary education thanks to the support of her parents.

Her customers are owners of local grocery stores and shops in the area where she lives and its surrounding communities.

One of the challenges that faces people who work in agriculture is the increasing cost of agricultural inputs that they use to grow and care for their crops. This is why Paula has asked for financial support from COMIXMUL, in order to buy necessary products and keep her crops clear of pests. This way she will prevent her crops from contaminating one another with diseases.

Her dreams are to see her children grow up and become professionals, even though she doesn't have any children yet. She dreams of being able to send her children to university so that they earn degrees and become professionals. She also hopes to build up the estate that she is currently working on alongside her spouse.

En compañía de su esposo se dedican a la agricultura: siembra maíz, frijol, café y en ocasiones a la cría y engorde de cerdos. Ella tiene un grado de educación primaria completo le cual pudo cursar gracias al apoyo brindado por sus padres. Sus clientes son los dueños de bodegas y pulperías que se encuentran en la zona donde ella habita y en los alrededores.

Uno de los desafíos que las personas que se dedican a la agricultura tienen es la alza de los precios en cuanto a los insumos agrícolas que utilizan para dar asistencia técnica y mantenimiento a sus cultivos por lo cual ella ha solicitado a COMIXMUL un apoyo financiero para poder comprar lo necesario y limpiar de plagas sus cosechas evitando que sean contagiadas con enfermedades entre otras.

Sus sueños es ver a sus hijos crecer y verlos convertidos en profesionales aunque en este momento no los tenga poderlos enviar a la universidad para que estudien carreras con futuro sean profesionales y poder fortalecer el patrimonio que hoy en día está formando junto a su esposo.

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.
