For the past 10 years Maria has been growing coffee. She also plants corn and beans for household consumption. She and her husband have a lot of experience in this field as both their families have the tradition of working the land with different crops. The coffee crops which they work together on as a family are their own. Their customers are different wholesalers and intermediaries in the area amongst others.
One of her greatest worries is the lack of support for her crops as the market prices for the inputs are unstable and expensive. So she needs a loan to buy manure and fertilizer which will be used in the best way possible to help her coffee crops this season. Maria dreams of a future improving her living conditions, supporting her children in their studies and hope that they don't have to live the the same conditions.
Una de sus más grandes preocupaciones es la falta de asistencia a sus cultivos ya que los precios en el mercado sobre los insumos son caros e inestables por lo que ella necesita financiamiento para la compra de abono y fertilizantes los cuales serán utilizados de la mejor manera posible para asistir sus cultivos de café en esta temporada. Doña Maria sueña en un futuro mejorar sus condiciones de vida, apoyar a sus hijos en sus estudios ya que ella en su niñez tuvo muchas limitaciones y no desea que ellos vivan la misma situación.
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.
