Unfortunately, her husband died five years ago, because he was suffering from an ulcer which could not be controlled. Since then, she has had to take care of the coffee crop and continue struggling to take care of the well-being of her children.
The oldest is 31 years old, already married, and has his own crops. He only studied to fifth grade because he was the only man in the family, and when his father developed health problems, it was up to him to take care of the farm, so he neglected his studies.
The second is 25 years old and only studied until sixth grade because she didn't like school. Over time, she got married. She lives with her husband in her mother's house, since her husband works outside of the community.
The last daughter is 21 years old and is a professional. She graduated as a primary school teacher, and practices her profession in an institution attended by people in poverty. During harvest time, she is involved in cutting the beans.
Ángela's coffee crop is located 200 meters from the home she lives in. The only problem she has is that the broker will not buy the beans at a fair price, since competition is not a problem.
Ángela's goal is to continue growing more coffee plants to earn a better income, and to buy more land to leave to her children as an inheritance so they can get ahead. Her only wish is that her youngest daughter can continue her university studies.
Because of this, today she has asked for financing from the COMIXMUL cooperative to buy agricultural inputs to care for her coffee crop and get an excellent crop this season.
Doña Ángela tiene como meta seguir cultivando más plantas de café, para obtener mejores ingresos económicos y comprar más tierras para dejarles a sus hijos como herencia y puedan seguir adelante y como su único deseo es que la última hija pueda seguir sus estudios en la Universidad.
Por lo que hoy día ha solicitado financiamiento a la cooperativa COMIXMUL para la compra de insumos agrícolas para poder asistir sus cultivos de café y obtener una excelente cosecha en esta temporada.
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.
