She has been growing and selling coffee for more than 10 years, an occupation taught to her by her father. It was a means of income for her family when she was young, and it remains so today. Her customers are the different buyers who come to the area, and also to the warehouses in the urban zone where her product is sold directly. Her crops are located about 15 minutes from the house where she lives, and every day she travels on foot in order to provide them with special care and prevent damage to her harvest.
Today, she is requesting help for the purchase of supplies such as compost, fertilizers, foliar applications, and similar items, in order to maintain her crops. With this support she will be able to protect her coffee plants and vegetables, and have more protection against pests and such.
Doña Maria has a little goal, which is to buy and sell pigs. Her idea is to be able to purchase 10 young pigs with her earnings, in order to fatten them up and sell them in her community, improving on the price and quality of the competition. Also, she wants to improve her crops day by day, in order to increase the variety and quality of her harvests a little more, and continue strengthening her family’s resources.

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.
