Ma Auxiliadira
Doña Auxiliadora is 37 years old. She is a very feisty woman with many dreams and ideals in life. She is the mother of four minor children who are attneding a school in the community. She, her husband, her four children and her sister live together.

She was unable to complete primary school due to the lack of economic support from her parents, to whom she is grateful for the help they did provide while she attended school.

Doña Auxiliadora has made a living planting and cultivating potatoes for many years because her parents not only taught her principles and values in her youth but also the value of work. It was they who taught her how to work the land.

Her crops are located very close to her house. That is where she travels on foot accompanied by her husband, the two of them being the only ones involved.

Her goals and dreams are to build wealth so they can buy a plot of land which will serve as a means of income and in the future as a legacy for her children and their descendants. Thus they will have a place to work, build their homes and generate income for their families. So, today she is requesting financing in order to purchase supplies, such as foliar fertilizers, compost, manure and certified seed potatoes, among other items, so that she can take care of and plant new crops.

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.
