Digna did not complete her fourth year of primary school education because her parents had limited resources and could not support her through the complete primary course of study. Thanks to the moral support of her parents she could learn the techniques and processes necessary for growing coffee and she has more than 15 years experience. She continues working hard and constantly in order to bring up her children as she is a single mother and has no other support.
The land that she works is her own and she acquired it thanks to an inheritance from her parents. It is located 30 minutes from her home which she traverses by walking. Her goals and hopes for her business is to expand, generate higher earnings, to buy new land with new coffee seedlings to improve her income for the wellbeing of her family and home. As a mother to her children she supports them in their studies, giving them the opportunity to be able to prepare academically so that they do not go through the same situation as she did as a youth due to the lack of financial support.
So today she is asking for financing in order to buy agricultural supplies and to be able to care for her coffee crops preventing deterioration from climatic changes, diseases such as rust and the coffee berry borer (beetle-like insect).

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.
