She has a lot of experience in this activity since she learned it over 20 years ago. She acquired this experience in her youth through her parents and currently works with her husband. They work on their own property thanks to an inheritance from her husband's parents. The land is located half an hour from their home and they travel there by foot.
Maria Octaviana and her husband work hard so that their children will not have to give up studying and and so they will have a better future, a better lifestyle and so they will not have to face the difficult situations their parents faced in their youth. Their products are marketed through intermediaries who come to the zone which has a good reputation for quality, cleanliness and their way of working; but as with all cultivations, there is always the risk of plagues and variation in market prices.
Currently Maria Octaviana is requesting help so she can invest in her fields of potatoes, broccoli and cauliflower by buying fertilizer, manure and fumigation sprays to help maintain her products so they are healthy and free of plagues.
Her dream is to be able to improve her home, to buy a piece of land so she can work and cultivate more vegetables; but her priority is to see her children become professionals with a better education and a brighter future for themselves.

Actualmente María Octaviana solicita ayuda para poder invertir en la siembra de papa, brócoli y coliflor comprando fertilizantes, abono, y bombas para fumigación a su producto para que ayude a mantenerlo sano y limpio de plagas.
Su sueño es poder mejorar su vivienda, comprar un pedazo de tierra para poder trabajar y cultivar mas hortaliza; pero la prioridad de ella es ver a sus hijos convertidos en profesionales teniendo una mejor educación y a sí mismo un mejor futuro.
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.
