Cecilia has grown coffee for many years. Coffee-growing has been in her family for generations, and she learned about it from her parents. She grows Lempira coffee. Her fields are near to her house so she can easily keep watch over the plants. However, her key market is 15 km away and she has to travel there by vehicle.
Cecilia's goals are to continue improving her standard of living, extending her coffee fields, and diversifying into different products. Today she is seeking a loan to buy agricultural supplies to help with maintenance and protection of her crops. She hopes that Kiva lenders will help her.
Su meta es seguir mejorando su calidad de vida, aumentar más el área de tierra para poder cultivar más café y poder también sembrar otra clase productos. Por lo que hoy Doña Cecilia solicita apoyo para la compra de insumos agrícolas que ayuden al cuidado y protección de sus cultivos esperando ser apoyada con su petición por los diferentes inversionistas en la plataforma de KIVA.
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.
