Victoria has been doing agriculture for more than 5 years. She learned to work in this area thanks to her ex-husband who has been a farmer all of his life. Besides harvesting and planting coffee, Victoria's business is selling candy and pieces of land that she has acquired.
Victoria's challenges are the lowering of prices and heavy rainfall (a climate factor). Competition in this area is not a problem, as it is located 3 kilometers from her home, where the bus travels and only involves her.
Her future plan as a mother is to keep investing in her coffee crops so that they become more productive each year, and in this way give her children a better quality of life. Her dream is to buy more land and keep farming since her goal is to invest the earnings in the same area. Currently Victoria is requesting financing for the purchase of fertilizers that are necessary for maintaining her coffee crops.

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.
