Mayra Elisabeth
Mayra is a fighter and an entrepreneur who works hard everyday to give her family the best. She married young, and has two children. The youngest attends school, and the eldest helps his father with different field work. She was not able to complete her education due to a lack of financial resources, which did not allow her to finish primary school. She completed up to the fourth grade. As a homemaker and a farmer, her greatest source of income is growing coffee. This is an activity that she has performed with her husband for many years. Her parents taught her how to work in the field, and she inherited the land that her family now works on from them. Their land is located next to their home, which is a great advantage that allows them to take better care of their crops.

Currently, Mayra is seeking help to purchase fertilizers, manure and pesticides that will allow them to care and protect their coffee crops in the new season. Her dream is to see her family prosper, earn greater incomes through their coffee crops, acquire more land to farm, and continue expanding their coffee plantation in order to help their children in the future and strengthen their children's inheritance.

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.
