She has seven years of education and attended a nearby school. She has been a housewife and farmer for more than thirty years as it was through her husband that she learned about farming. Agriculture is the only means of earning a living in the area where she lives.
As well Mirian has a small grocery store in her house and a mill for grinding maize. The land where she farms is her own; after many years of effort they were able to buy it. It is located thirty minutes from the house, and on it she grows a variety of coffee plants. She and her husband thank God for this great privilege and opportunity in spite of the challenges that this type of farming brings on a daily basis.
Mirian’s plans for the future include continuing to expand the farm by buying more land. This will enable her to leave her children a good inheritance so they can continue working the land for generations, a great blessing.
Today Mirian is seeking a loan to buy farming supplies such as manure, plant fertilizer, special feed for coffee plants, fungicide, herbicide etc. to provide protection for the plants.
Sus planes para el futuro son los de seguir ampliando más sus cultivos de café mediante la compra de tierra de esta manera ella fortalecerá el patrimonio para sus hijos y que sean ellos quienes sigan trabajándola de generación en generación y que sea de gran bendición. Por lo que hoy en día ella solicita un financiamiento para la compra de insumos agrícolas para sus cultivos de café como abono, foliares, formula cafetalera, fungicidas, herbicidas, entre otros que darán protección a sus cultivos.
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.
