Maria Cruz
Maria is very happy, content, satisfied and grateful to God for all of the blessings that rain down every day upon her and her family, her work and her other activities and different people who surround her. Thanks to the loan she got with KIVA funds, in alliance with the COMIXMUL cooperative, she was able to buy the necessary materials to be able to help her coffee crops. Thanks to this loan, she helped maintain her crops, protecting them from weather changes, pests, and illnesses, ensuring the harvest in season. Thanks to her first coffee harvest, she was able to make good profits and pay for a part of her first loan in order to apply according to the COMIXMUL rules and refinance so she can reinvest in her coffee crops. On this new occasion, she is asking for a second loan from COMIXMUL to be able to invest again in her coffee crops by buying fertilizer, foliar spray and other products that will help keep her beans and stalks, thus avoiding contamination and destruction of her crops by pests or rust.

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.
