Lesli Liceth
Lesli is a hardworking, responsible, and dedicated woman in spite of the absence of her father, who died when she was seven years old. Her mother never stopped supporting her with everything she could for her basic needs. Due to a lack of financial resources, she was only able to study through sixth grade. Years passed and she met her partner, who she married, and together they have an 11 year old son who is in the sixth grade at the school in their community.

She and her husband both work planting coffee. They also plant basic grains for consumption and have a small grocery store in their home to help minimize costs and generate more income. Since she was married 14 years ago, her husband taught her about farming, including cleaning, applying manure and fertilizer, and other things necessary to care for crops. They own the land they cultivate. They inherited 2 1/2 manzanas from her father and purchase another plot with their own effort. Their coffee fields are located a 15 minute walk from their home and sometimes they travel in a vehicle to arrive more quickly.

Lesli dreams of seeing her son graduate and become a professional since she was not able to do those things for financial reasons. She and her husband struggle to provide their son a better future. They are requesting this loan to purchase fertilizer, urea, liquid fertilizer for plant leaves, and to pay for laborers to apply the supplies and clean their crops.

Lesli es una mujer luchadora, responsable y muy dedicada que a pesar de la ausencia de su padre quien falleció cuando ella tenía la edad de 7 años su madre jamás dejo de apoyarla en lo que estuviese a su alcance con las necesidades primarias y por la falta de recursos ella no puedo estudiar lo que permitió que ella solo llegara hasta sexto grado. Al pasar de los años conoció a su pareja con quien se casó y con quien tiene solo un hijo de 11 años el cual está en sexto grado en la escuela de la comunidad. Tanto ella como su esposo trabajan juntos en el rubro del café además de sembrar granos básicos para consumo también tienen un pequeño negocio de pulpería en su casa de habitación el cual ayuda a minimizar los gastos y generar más ingresos. Desde que se casó hace 14 años fue su esposo quien le enseñara a trabajar en el campo en las diferentes actividades que son realizadas como limpieza, aplicación de abono, foliares, fertilizantes, entre otros que son necesarios para el cuidado del grano. El terreno que cultivan es propio 2 ½ manzanas heredando estas su padre y otra manzana más que la han comprado con esfuerzo. Dichas tierras cultivadas de café están a 15 minutos caminando de su casa y a veces se trasladan en vehículo llegando más rápido. Lesli sueña con ver graduado a su hijo, tener la satisfacción de verlo convertido en profesional ya que ella no pudo conseguirlo por razones económicas las cuales relata para el futuro de su hijo no será atraso ya que ella y su esposo luchan por brindar a su hijo un mejor futuro. Por lo cual solicita financiamiento el cual utilizara para invertirlo en la compra de fertilizantes, urea y foliares, también para pagar la mano de obra para aplicarle estos insumos y también darle una limpieza a sus cultivos.

Additional Information

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.
