Maira Yecenia
Doña Maira is very pleased, satisfied, and content with the financial support that the Kiva lenders have offered as a result of the partnership with the COMIXMUL cooperative. She will be able to buy necessary supplies for growing coffee. This will help her to do a better job of maintaining her crops and protecting them from pests, weather changes, and other factors that could have a negative effect.

Thanks to the first loan she received, her life improved because she did not have the financial resources at first to buy the necessary supplies. Thanks to the trust that the cooperative has placed in her, she was able to buy compost, foliar plant food, and fertilizers so that she could provide daily maintenance for her coffee crops. Maira was able to achieve excellent earnings during harvest time and remain current on her loan.

Once again, she requests assistance with this second loan that she will use to provide care and maintenance for her coffee crops. After the plants have been pruned, they have the appearance of being mistreated and shriveled for a brief period. At that time, the land is cleared of weeds and other debris.

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.
