Juventina
Juventina, 24, is a young woman with a lot of goals and dreams in life, and she very much wants to get ahead. She's married and the mother of an only child who's in elementary school in a school in the community. Juventina finished elementary school, for which she's grateful to her parents' moral and financial support.

She's a very dynamic and enterprising woman who, thanks to a variety of training and working with friends and relatives, has learned to make bread and pinewood handicrafts. She grows tomatoes near her house. She thanks God for her abilities and an open approach to learning.

Juventina has requested a loan from the COMIXMUL cooperative to buy agricultural inputs to take care of her tomato crop. By applying the inputs she'll be able to improve her tomato plants and avoid pests and other contamination.

Her plans for the future are to be able to improve her harvests with a new irrigation system to keep her crop healthy and nourished. She also wants to continue farming, but in larger quantities to be able to cover her currently unsatisfied demand.

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.
