Maria De Los Angeles
Doña Maria is a 49 year old married woman who is in excellent health with plenty of energy and spirit to work. She works in a company belonging to her husband and her family. Her family is large: it is made up of 8 children; only three of them live with their parents. She takes care of them because they are minors and are studying in primary school.

Her family works sowing and cultivating coffee because she learned this at an early age from her parents. They were the ones to teach her how to work the soil, because they were unable to support her in her studies. She only completed the second grade. Due to scarce economic resources, she decided to learn to work and help her family to get ahead. Her coffee plants are located on the same property as where she lives, so the maintenance and assistance they need is easier to give for their protection and care. Her dream, as the mother of her family, is to be able to educate her children so that they can live in good conditions and to give them a better quality of life with a higher level of education. She also dreams of improving her plants by sowing a better and more attractive variety of coffee.

So today she is asking the co-op bank COMIXMUL for funding to buy 10 quintals of urea, 5 quintals of 18-46-0 fertilizer, 8 quintals of coffee formula fertilizer, and 5 quintals of growth formula to be able to help her plants and get better output and higher profits from the same sales.

Doña María es una mujer de 49 años de edad casada la cual goza de una excelente salud suficiente energía y muchos ánimos para trabajar. Ella trabaja en compañía de su esposo y su familia la cual es muy numerosa compuesta por 8 hijos de los cuales solo tres viven con ellos los cuales están a su cargo ya que son menores y estudian en la primaria. En familia se dedican a la siembra y cultivo de café ya que ella aprendió desde pequeña en compañía de sus padres. Fueron ellos los que le enseñaron a trabajar la tierra ya que no pudieron apoyarla en sus estudios pudiendo cursar hasta el segundo grado de primaria; porque eran de escasos recursos económicos entonces ella decidió aprender a trabajar y ayudarle a su familia para salir adelante. Sus cultivos de café están ubicados en la misma propiedad donde ella habita por lo que el mantenimiento y asistencia se le es más fácil de dar para protección y cuidado. Sus sueños como madre de familia es poder educar a sus hijos para que ellos puedan vivir en buenas condiciones y darles una mejor y mayor calidad de vida con un nivel educativo superior como también los de agrandar más sus cultivos sembrando una mejor y más atractiva variedad de café.

Por lo que hoy en día ella solicita un financiamiento a la cooperativa COMIXMUL para la compra de 10 QQ de urea, 5 QQ de abono 18-46-0, 8 QQ formula cafetalera y 5 QQ de fórmula de crecimiento para poder asistir sus cultivos y obtener una mejor producción y una mejor ganancia de la venta misma.

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.
