Rosa completed her primary education through sixth grade, when she had to stop studying due to the lack of economic support from her parents. Her parents taught her how to cultivate coffee, an activity practiced by her family for many generations, which she continues today with her husband. The land which they cultivate is their own property, thanks to their effort and commitment to restrict themselves from many things to avoid renting.
Presently, she is seeking help to buy compost, fertilizers and other inputs that help prevent crop diseases such as rust and other pests which deteriorate the quality of the product. In this way she will be able to give better and more secure maintenance of her crops.
Her future plan is to have a large plantation offering variety to her customers and all those who consume her products, to generate more income which will strengthen the inheritance left to her children and grandchildren, who will continue to work the land from generation to generation.

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.
