The land that they work is their own thanks to an inheritance from her parents. The land is located ten minutes away from their house, and they go there daily to tend, clean, and fertilize their crop. They then sell their products in the local market to various middlemen who come to the area.
Adolfina is requesting this loan which she will use to invest in her crops by purchasing a large amount of certified potato seed, fertilizer and organic compost, as well as additional fungicides and insecticides.
Her future plans are to improve her harvests with an irrigation system to keep her crops healthy and well fed. She will also continue to grow her crops with greater quality and quantity so that she can offer more of both to her customers. Ultimately, she hopes be able to give her children a good education through higher levels of schooling.
Doña Adolfina solicita ayuda para invertir en su cultivo comprando 11 QQ de semilla de papa certificada para su siembra, 10 QQ de fórmula 12-24-12, 8 kilos de manzate, 8 kilos de conter, 8 kilos de curion, 6 botes de muralla, 9 kilos de mancoceb y 10 QQ de gallinaza.
Sus planes a futuro son los de poder mejorar sus cosechas implementando un sistema de riego para mantener saludable y alimentado el producto como también los de seguir cultivando pero en cantidad y calidad para ofrecer más a sus clientes y poder darle a sus hijos una buena educación a nivel superior.
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.
