Barbara
Bárbara, 30, is a hardworking, enterprising woman who is grateful to God and who very much wants to get ahead and improve. She’s married and mother of three children who are minors and attending different grades in school. She did not complete her schooling having attended just up to fifth grade. She was unable to go further because her parents were of low economic resources and were unable to help her do so.

Since her childhood she’s worked growing coffee, an activity practiced by her family to date. It’s her only source of income. Her parents taught her how to work the land many years ago and she continues doing so to date. The land she works was an inheritance she got from her father so that she could work and generate income for her home. Her house is located on the same land she works so caring for her crops and keeping them in healthy condition and protecting them is no problem.

She’s currently asking for support to buy fertilizer, manure and fungicide, among others to provide coffee crop maintenance and to do some weeding which will improve her crops and the land. She hopes the harvest at the end of the season will be productive, to earn income and to be able to continue investing in it.

Her dream is to be able to grow more coffee and extend her crops in future, to provide her children with the opportunity of attending university learning a career that will help them improve and grow as persons in an environment in which they can adapt easily.

Doña Barbara es una mujer con 30 años de edad luchadora, emprendedora y agradecida con DIOS, con muchos deseos de superarse y de salir adelante casada y madre de 3 hijos los cuales son menores de edad y estudian en la escuela en diferentes grados de educación. Ella tiene un grado de educación no completado cursado hasta el 5 grado y no pudo continuar por la falta de apoyo económico ya que sus padres son de bajos recursos y no pudieron apoyarla. Desde su niñez se ha dedicado al cultivo de café actividad practicada por su familia hasta hoy en día siendo este el único sustento ya que fueron sus padres los que le enseñaron a trabajar la tierra hace muchos años y en la actualidad sigue practicando. La tierra que ella trabaja fue una herencia que le dejo su padre para que trabajara y generara ingresos para su hogar la cual está ubicada en la misma propiedad donde ella habita por lo que no es problema dar mantenimiento y asistencia a sus cultivos para mantenerlos sanos y protegidos.

Actualmente solicita ayuda para la compra de fertilizantes, abonos, fungicidas, entre otros para darle mantenimiento a sus cultivos de café y una limpieza la cual mejorara sus cultivos, la tierra y al final de la temporada espera sea provechosa para poder generar ingresos, obtener ganancias y poder seguir invirtiendo en la misma.

Su sueño es poder con el tiempo cultivar y extender más su cultivo de café, darle la oportunidad a sus hijos para que puedan educarse a nivel universitario aprendiendo una carrera que les ayude a superase y a crecer como personas en un ambiente al que ellos puedan adaptarse con toda facilidad.

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.
