Comayagua, Comayagua Department, Honduras / Agriculture

Maria Auristela's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy agricultural inputs for her coffee crops.

Maria Auristela's story

María's very happy, contented, and satisfied because thanks to her first loan from the COMIXMUL cooperative she was able to take care of her coffee crops. She bought 8 quintals of urea, 8 quintals of 12-24-12 formula, and 8 quintals of 18-46-0 formula to apply to her crops so she could keep the plants and the beans healthy. She sold the beans to intermediary buyers in the area, thus avoiding the expense of transportation to the storehouses that specialize in buying and selling. This way she made the most of her crops. Part of her land is located about five minutes away; the rest is fifteen minutes by car. Currently María's requesting the support of a second loan to buy soil amendments, fertilizer, and other agricultural inputs to weed her own property and get a better product from her business. María's first loan helped her a lot with her crop and guaranteed her harvest, so she's asking for help a second time so little by little her goals, plans, and dreams will become a reality.
