Along with her husband she works the land she inherited from her father which is located about a 20 minute walk from their house. Her husband is the technical and moral support with whom she does the different field work like cleaning, spreading manure, applying foliar spray, etc. Her future plans are to expand her coffee planting by purchasing more land and planting more coffee plants. This would generate more revenues for her family. She dreams of seeing her son graduate and being prepared academically.
So today she is requesting a loan to buy agricultural inputs to help her coffee crops as not doing this would risk exposing them to sicknesses like coffee rust (la roya) and insects like the coffee borer beetle amongst others. They would damage the work of the family and the product on which they depend economically.
Sus planes a futuro es poder ampliar más sus cultivos de café mediante la compra de tierra y la siembra de café, generar mayores ingresos para su familia ya que ella sueña con ver a su hijo graduado y preparado académicamente.
Por lo que ella hoy en día solicita financiamiento para la compra de insumos agrícolas para poder asistir sus cultivos de café ya que de no hacerlo pueden estar expuestos a enfermedades como la roya, bichos como la broca entre otros que dañarían el trabajo de familia y el producto del cual dependen económicamente.
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.
