Suyapa
Suyapa is a very tenacious and enterprising woman. She is grateful for the different loans that she has received since May of 2013 in order to be able to care for and maintain her coffee crops. They have helped to grow and strengthen her land, the harvest, and the family income in a peaceful way without worries.

She used her first loan to buy agricultural supplies that helped protect and maintain her coffee crops. In that time the rust was propagating very rapidly among the different crops and damaging the crops of many producers.

Her second loan was also requested for the care of the crops because after the pruning, the plants were left poorly treated and deteriorated. She did get good income from her coffee crops, which she sold for a very good price in the market in spite of the drop in the market.

This time she is again requesting support from the different Kiva lenders to be able to buy the needed supplies and care for her coffee crops. This is because they are in the production process in this new season.

Doña Suyapa es una mujer emprendedora y muy luchadora la cual agradece los diferentes apoyos financieros que ha recibido desde Mayo del 2013 para poder dar asistencia y mantenimiento a sus cultivos de café. Estos han ayudado a crecer y fortalecer su tierra, cosecha, ingresos familiares y demás de una manera pacífica y sin preocupaciones. Su primer financiamiento lo utilizo para compra de insumos agrícolas que ayudaron a dar protección y mantenimiento a sus cultivos de café ya que para ese momento la roya se propagaba muy rápido entre los diferentes cultivos y dañando los de muchos productores a la vez. Su segundo financiamiento fue solicitado también para el mismo rubro de manera que este fue invertido en la asistencia ya que después del corte del grano las plantas quedaron deterioradas y maltratadas obteniendo al final de la cosecha muy buenas ganancias sobre sus cultivos de café los cuales vendió a muy buen precio en el mercado a pesar de la baja del mismo. En esta ocasión solicita nuevamente pueda ser apoyada por los diferentes inversionistas en la plataforma de KIVA para poder comprar los insumos necesarios y asistir sus cultivos de café ya que están en proceso de producción en esta nueva temporada.

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.
