Ana Celea
Ana Celea finished middle school and learned to work in agriculture when she was very young. In addition, her husband has helped her acquire great experience in coffee growing. Ana Celea has four children: the eldest is 20 years old, lives abroad and finished high school with a specialization in management; the second oldest is 15 years old and studies forest sciences in a secondary school located in a different community. Her third daughter is 14 years old and is in middle-school. Her youngest daughter is in fifth grade, in a local school.

Coffee growing is the family’s main economic activity. In addition, Ana Celea also works with sewing activities, which represents an additional income for the family. Her parents left her a small piece of land located 15 minutes away from where they live and in which, together with her husband, she started producing coffee six years ago. They have learned a lot from this work. They sell the coffee locally. Every member in the family is involved and they were taught to work hard and remain together since they were very young.

Her biggest dream is that her younger daughters can become professionals and can have a better future; this is why she and her husband fight to make it come true. She is requesting a loan to buy agricultural supplies to keep their crops in good health and obtain a good product when the harvesting time comes. This is something important for the family, as their wellbeing depends on that.

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.
