Nora Suyapa
Nora is 36 years old. She is married and the mother of 4 children, 3 of whom are in school. She is a housewife and a farmer who finished her primary education thanks to the moral and economic support of her parents. She and her husband struggle every day to get ahead and be able to offer her family a better future and better education, food, clothing, shoes, and medicine. Although there are a lot of limitations, she generates income through her coffee crops, and that is her only source of income. He husband is the one who is most involved in different activities of the field like: clearing, fertilizer application, foliar sprays and other products necessary to care for the crops. She gets involved only in the cutting and harvesting of the beans.

She dreams of seeing her children in a better future with better opportunities and better living conditions so they can get ahead with their own families and homes with everything they need to have better opportunities in life. As a producer, she wants to improve and diversify her coffee crops and avoid the effect of concentrating on one activity. She wants to keep expanding her land and thus keep fortifying the inheritance for her children. Today she is asking for a loan to buy agricultural materials to help improve her coffee crops, such as foliar spray, fertilizer, and more, as well as to pay for the labor costs for clearing and treating the crops. This will take maximum advantage of the loan and the products that it will buy. She hopes to be supported to meet her goals for this new year.

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.
