Doris Maritza
Doris, 30, is in a common-law marriage and the mother of three children. She finished elementary school.

Doris has been a farmer for 10 years. She and her companion earn a living growing coffee, which they sell to different buyers and intermediaries around the area where she lives as well as in the local market. She learned this job from her parents and currently does it with her partner. Both of them are involved in all the farming activities such as irrigation, maintenance, weeding, and other tasks.

Currently she's requesting a loan to buy 12 quintals of fertilizer, 10 quintals of coffee formula, and 12 quintals of urea to take care of her coffee crops. She hopes her harvest will improve and give excellent results.

Doris's goals for the future are to expand her land, plant a variety of grains to help her business grow, improve her income for her family, and, above all, earn income to give her children a better education and send them to college.

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.
