Mayra Argentina
Mayra is a young woman, 29 years of age. She is a mother of a 3 year old son, and a hard worker who completed primary school. Together with her live-in partner she has been able to get ahead, thanks to her dedication to her vegetable crops (potatoes, broccoli and cauliflower). She has a lot of experience as she learned the trade more than 10 years ago, directed and instilled in her by her parents who are still farming. This is her family's only source of income right now, and is the way that they have been able to get ahead and move forward. They own the land where they work, located a few meters from their home, thanks to their efforts and dedication during many years of work. Today Mayra and her partner work hard so that their son can have a better future, a better lifestyle, and better opportunities in life. They sell their products through intermediaries that come to the zone, as well as selling to neighbors and going to the market to sell their goods.

Currently they are asking for help to be able to buy certified potato seeds in order to have a safe and reliable crop.

Her dream is to be able to improve their house, to be a producer of potatoes in greater quantities, and to have the best production in the area; but her priority is to see her son become a professional by getting a better education and thus a better future.

Su sueño es poder mejorar su vivienda, ser una productora de papa en cantidades mayores y ser la mejor de la zona en su producción; pero la prioridad de ella es ver a su hijo convertido en profesional teniendo una mejor educación y a sí mismo un mejor futuro.

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.
