Ana Dilia
Ana Dilia is 27 years old and in a common-law marriage. She is a farmer and a homemaker, and she has one newborn son. Ana Dilia finished the fourth grade, but she was unable to stay in school because her parents did not have enough money. Her parents taught her how to work the land at a very young age, maintaining the family tradition of farming, which has been passed on for generations. Every day, Ana Dilia and her husband walk 20 minutes to reach their fields, which they own thanks to a family inheritance.

Ana Dilia is requesting this loan from Kiva and the field partner to buy fertilizers and manure to keep her coffee crops well-maintained. She says that coffee growing is her family’s only source of income. Ana Dilia says that her goal is to improve her coffee and to grow more varieties. She hopes that her coffee will compete in the marketplace, like Borbone and other successful varieties, because of its quality and flavor. Ana Dilia dreams to improve her family’s quality of life and to move ahead with her plans to be successful. She says that her priorities are her son’s education and strengthening her family’s legacy.

Ana Dilia es una joven de 27 años de edad, ama de casa y agricultora, en un estado civil en unión libre, madre de 1 hijo el cual está recién nacido. Ella tiene un grado de educación primario cursado hasta el cuarto grado ya que sus padres eran de escasos recursos económicos y no pudieron apoyarle para que ella pudiese seguir estudiando. Fueron sus padres quienes le enseñaron a trabajar la tierra a muy temprana edad ya que en su familia es una tradición que viene de generación en generación. En compañía de su conyugue diariamente se dirigen hasta sus cultivos de café caminando por 20 minutos los cuales son propios gracias a una herencia familiar.

Ella actualmente ha solicitado a la cooperativa COMIXMUL un financiamiento con el cual pretende comprar fertilizantes y abonos con lo que ayudaran mediante la aplicación de estos insumos a mantener limpio sus cultivos de café siendo esta su única actividad económica de ingreso para su familia.

Sus metas son los de poder cultivar una mejor y mayor variedad de café, que sea competitiva en el mercado por su calidad y por su sabor como el borbone entre otros que son de gran éxito en el mercado. Sus sueños son los de poder mejorar la condición de vida de su familia y seguir adelante con cada uno de los proyectos que tiene para triunfar en la vida teniendo como prioridad la educación de su hijo y el fortalecimiento del patrimonio.

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.
