Maria Nolvia
Maria Nolvia is a farmer, housewife, and mother of two minor children who live with her. She has a fifth grade education and works hard with her domestic partner every day so that the children don’t have to face the same situation that she faced in her youth. They support them so that they are in need of nothing. She has been raising coffee since she was very young and has lots of experience in raising this and other products such as corn and beans. The land belongs to her and her partner, thanks to their physical efforts and some restrictions over the years so they can own their own land and not have to pay rent to get their family ahead. They also live on the land and the two of them are the only ones who work the fields.

Her goals are to provide a good education for her children and a good future so they can be ready for tomorrow. This is why she works so hard every day. She is asking for a loan through COMIXMUL so she can buy farming supplies such as coffee fertilizer, growth formula, formula 18-46-0, and urea to help maintain her coffee crop. Her family income depends on this.

Maria Nolvia es agricultora y ama de casa, madre de 2 hijos los cuales viven en su casa de habitación ya que son menores de edad. Con 5 años de educación primaria ella lucha diariamente en compañía de su compañero de hogar para que sus hijos no pasen por la misma situación que ella en su juventud paso apoyándoles en todo lo que puede y lo necesario para que a ellos no les falte nada. Ella se dedica especialmente al cultivo de café desde muy joven teniendo mucha experiencia en el cultivo de este y otros productos como el maíz y los frijoles. La tierra que en compañía de su pareja de hogar trabajan es propia gracias al esfuerzo físico y algunas restricciones por muchos años para obtener un terreno de forma propia y evitar pagar alquiler de tierras para sacar adelante su familia la cual está ubicada en la misma propiedad donde ella y su familia habitan siendo ellos 2 los únicos que se involucran es las diferentes actividades del campo.

Sus metas y sueños son las de darle a sus hijos una buena educación un buen futuro con el cual ellos puedan tener como la mejor arma para el día de mañana. Es por ello que ella lucha día a día y hoy ha solicitado un financiamiento a la cooperativa COMIXMUL para la compra insumos agrícolas como: formula cafetalera, formula de crecimiento, formula 18-46-0 y urea que ayudara a darles un excelente y satisfactorio mantenimiento a sus cultivos de café ya que los ingresos para su familia dependen de esta actividad.

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.
