She works in agriculture growing coffee. For more than 11 years she has been involved in this activity along with her partner. He taught her to work the land. Their crops and house are on the same land, so she was interested to watch her husband carry out the process until the harvest of each year. Her clients are neighbors, family, friends and middlemen who live in the area or arrive to purchase a product that is considered to be of high quality. One challenge for the small farmer is the rise in prices of supplies that they use to assist their crops plus the costs to transport the supplies to her house.
At present she is requesting a loan to buy the agricultural supplies needs to assist and maintain her coffee crops. Her goals are to finish a cement structure to dry and clean the grains once harvested. She dreams of forming a coffee producers cooperative in the area to commercialize the coffee beans in other parts of the world so they can enjoy their quality.
Por lo que hoy ella solicita financiamiento para la compra de insumos agrícolas con los cuales dará asistencia y mantenimiento a sus cultivos de café.
Sus metas poder llevar a cabo la construcción de una plancha de cemento para poder secar y lavar el grano una vez recolectado. Sus sueños formar una cooperativa de productores de café en la zona para poder llevar a cabo la gestión del grano de café en otros lugares del mundo y que conozcan la calidad.
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.
