Rosalina grows carrots in order to generate income for her family. She has been doing this type of work for more than six years. Like most of the other residents who live in the area and make pottery, she sells to her customers at the local market, which is located 20 kilometers from her house. Therefore, she must travel by bus.
Her goals, plans, and dreams include continuing to expand her parcels of land so that she can continue growing carrots. In addition, she would like to diversify her crops by planting other types of vegetables. Rosalina wants to help her children with their studies so that they can finish their education and become prepared academically. She does not want them to go through the same situation that she experienced in her youth.
Doña Rosalina is requesting assistance with buying farming supplies that will help her crops grow and will protect them from animals, pests, and weather factors. She hopes to obtain a good income at the end of the season.

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.
