Abelina
Abelina is a woman who is a fighter. She is a happy 38 year old with one grade of primary education and the mother of one child. Her household companion is a farmer like she is. They grow vegetables (potatoes). This is the only source of income for their family to cover the household expenses. Once the product is harvested it is sold in the local market, thanks to her mother in law's help and some intermediaries that go to the area. Abelina's parents were the ones who taught her a long time ago about this activity. They also worked in this area to earn income to support the family. The land that she and her household companion work is their own, and for that the thank GOD.

Right now, she is asking for help to buy fertilizer and other materials to be able to grow and also expand her crops. Her goal is to plant lettuce so she can diversify and not depend on one product. She wants to grow with her crops and over time open a farming and livestock business to sell fertilizers and seeds to help with the family income and for its benefit.

Doña Abelina es una mujer luchadora, feliz de 38 años de edad con un grado de escolaridad de primaria completo y madre de un hijo. Su compañero de hogar también es agricultor al igual que ella quienes se dedican al cultivo de hortalizas (papa) ya que es la única fuente de ingreso para su familia y poder cubrir los gastos en su hogar. Una vez cosechado el producto este es vendido en el mercado local gracias al apoyo de su suegra y con algunos intermediarios que llegan a la zona. A doña Abelina fueron sus padres los que le enseñaron hace mucho tiempo dicha actividad ya que ellos también tenían este rubro como medio de ingreso para el sustento familiar. El terreno que ella y su compañero de hogar cultivan es propio por el cual dan gracias a DIOS.
Actualmente ella solicita ayuda para la compra de abono, fertilizantes y otros insumos para poder cultivar y poder al mismo tiempo ampliar más sus cultivos de hortalizas los cuales tiene como meta la siembra de lechuga para poder diversificar los mismos y no depender de un solo producto. Sus metas son poder crecer con sus cultivos y con el tiempo abrir un negocio de agropecuaria para la venta de fertilizantes, semillas, que ayudaran al ingreso de su familia y beneficio de la misma.

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.
