In her childhood she had the opportunity to finish elementary school, for which she's grateful for her parents' effort and sacrifice. Her three children attend school in the community while she and her husband do farm labor such as weeding, caring for the crop, and other tasks before the season for harvesting the beans.
With 11 years of experience in farm work she has been able to get ahead with her family despite the difficulties that have arisen along the way, including pests, the rising cost of inputs, and the instability of the prices for buying and selling the coffee. She's also grateful to her parents that she learned the trade of beekeeping, with which she has also been able to get ahead. The land that she and her family farm is located two kilometers from her home, and they walk there.
Currently she's requesting a loan to buy soil amendments and fertilizer to get a better bean from her farm this year. She has a lot of faith and hope of getting ahead, because her household income depends on this work.
Her plan for the future is to improve her coffee crop every day. Her dream as a mother is to prepare her children intellectually so they'll be prosperous people in life and improve their standard of living. With her profits she plants to reinvest in her land and fulfill her commitment.
Hoy en día ella solicita apoyo financiero con el cual comprara abono y fertilizantes para lograr obtener este nuevo año una mejor cosecha de grano sobre su plantación de la cual tiene mucha fe y esperanza de salir adelante pues los ingresos financieros en el hogar dependen de esta actividad. Sus planes para el futuro son los de mejorar su cultivo de café día a día. Sus sueño como madre es preparar a sus hijos intelectualmente para que sean personas prosperas en la vida y puedan mejorar su nivel de vida ya que con las ganancias ella planea re invertir en sus tierras y cumplir con su compromiso.
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.
