Maria Reyna
Reyna is a hard-working, enterprising woman who puts herself forward everyday to provide the best for her family. She married early and has 8 children. Four of them live at home and studied through primary school, but afterwards began to work in the field with their father; the other four live in their own homes. Reyna herself could not attend school full-time due to a lack of economic resources. She didn't finish primary school, but only studied through the fourth grade. Reyna is a farmer of coffee, corn, and beans; she learned the work alongside her husband and children many years ago. Her parents couldn't send her to school, but they did teach her to earn an honorable, dignified, and responsible living for herself. Her fields are located about a twenty minute walk from the family home.

Reyna is currently requesting help in purchasing fertilizers, manure, herbicides and cleaners for her coffee fields. This will help her earn the income that they need to get ahead and follow their dreams and goals of continuing to expand their crops and strengthen their children's inheritance. They hope that they will continue to work the land from generation to generation to support their families and homes.

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.
