The family income depends on the work they do every day as a family in the field, tending their coffee crops, because in the community where they live there is no other option for work apart from farming. The family have a 30 minute walk from their home to where they grow their crops.
María Pascuala has asked for a loan from the COMIXMUL co-operative which she will use to buy agricultural supplies for the coffee crops, which she hopes will give a better harvest and keep the final crop free of blight and insects.
Her future plans are to grow a better variety of coffee so she can get a better income from her agriculture and continue to support her children in their studies and other needs which may arise in the future.
Ella ha solicitado a la cooperativa COMIXMUL un financiamiento con el cual comprara insumos agrícolas para su cultivo de café con los cuales busca obtener una mejor cosecha y asegurar el producto al final de plagas y bichos. Los planes a futuro son los de poder cultivar una mejor variedad de café ya que de esta forma ella podrá obtener mejores ingresos con la agricultura y seguir apoyando a sus hijos en sus estudios y demás necesidades que se presenten en un futuro.
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.
Loan tags help lenders find loans that match certain areas of interest. You can add up to 5 tags for this loan.
