Koritza
Koritza is a farmer and a housekeeper. Having been abandoned by her partner she is now a single mother raising two children, both of whom still live with her because they are under 18. She supports her children in everything they need and everything she can so that they lack nothing.

Koritza went through eight years of primary school and now, in the company of her family, works hard every day so that her children do not find themselves in the same situation she was in during her youth. She has specialized in the cultivation of coffee since she was very young, so she has a great deal of experience. The land on which she and her family work is their own. Their parents bestowed on them a piece of land so that they could work their own land and generate income for their children.

Her goals and dreams are to give her children a good education and a good future which will be their best weapon for tomorrow. For this reason Koritza works hard day after day and today requests financing from COMIXMUL. She will purchase agricultural supplies such as: coffee fertilizer, coffee growth formula and urea; and will pay the laborers who help ensure the excellent and satisfactory maintenance of the coffee crops on which her family depends.

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.
