Irma completed her Primary Education degree into which she put in a lot of effort and had the support of her parents in spite of their modest economic situation. She has a lot of experience in the agricultural activities as her parents taught her to work the land. Along with her husband they have farmed for seven years. The land they grow on is theirs as she inherited it from her parents. It is located 30 minutes distance from their house, which they walk daily. Her goal is to be able to buy another plot of land, where she would grow a different, much more popular type of coffee that she could offer to her clients and generate higher income. This would fortify the family estate for her children.
Today she is requesting a loan to buy agricultural supplies such as 8 bags of fertilizer, 6 liters of foliar sprays, 6 liters of boron and 800 seedlings (young coffee plants) to grow and prepare for a new harvest in the following season.
Sus metas son las de poder comprar otro terreno en donde ella pueda cultivar otra variedad de café mucho más atractiva para poder ofrecer a sus clientes y generar mayores ingresos, de esa manera ella podrá fortalecer el patrimonio familiar para sus hijos. Por lo que hoy en día ella solicita un financiamiento para comprar insumos agrícolas como 8 sacos de abono, 6 litros de foliares, 6 litros de boro y 800 chapolas (plantillas de café) para dar mantenimiento y preparar una nueva cosecha para la próxima temporada
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.
