She studied three years of primary school thanks to her parents, but could not continue due to the lack of economic support. Eight years ago, she started to grow coffee together with her husband, but she learned to do it when she was very young, thanks to her parents who have been working with this for many years. She also has a small grocery store at home and her customers are friends, relatives, neighbors and people from the surroundings. They work their own land, located close to where they live, so they have easy access to it and can easily give it maintenance.
Her plans and goals for the future are to enlarge her coffee plantations and buy more land. She will plant more and better types of coffee in order to make her product more attractive to her customers. She wants to give her children the opportunity to study at the university and become professionals so that in the future, when she and her husband are gone, they can continue to work their land, start their own businesses, create jobs and be independent entrepreneurs.
This is why she is requesting a loan to buy agricultural supplies, such as compost, leaf fertilizers and other types of fertilizers needed to strengthen and protect her coffee plantations.
Sus planes y metas para el futuro ampliar sus cultivos de café mediante la compra de más tierra y cultivar una mayor y una mejor variedad de producto que pueda ser más atractivo para sus clientes y demás. Para con sus hijos dar la oportunidad a cada uno de ellos que puedan convertirse en profesionales a nivel universitario adquiriendo los conocimientos necesarios para el día de mañana que ellos como padres falten tengan una tierra donde trabajar, formar sus empresas, sus hogares y generen empleo y no sean empleados. Por lo que hoy en día ella solicita un financiamiento con el cual comprara insumos como abono, foliares, fertilizantes entre otros para fortalecer y proteger sus cultivos de café.
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.
