Maria Maximinia
Maria is a 23 year old, hardworking, enterprising, single woman with much youth ahead of her and lots to learn about life. She has a sixth grade education and lives with her parents. She was not able to continue studying due to a lack of financial support from her parents, but they taught her how to work the land so that she could earn an income to cover her personal needs. The land she works belongs to her. She inherited it from her parents and is located 200 meters away. She walks there daily.

She is asking for help so she can buy fertilizer and compost for her coffee crop, because these items are expensive but necessary so that her crops remain healthy and free from disease that destroys coffee crops.

Her goal is to keep her crops healthy and free from disease and other things that can damage them so that she can have a good harvest and be able to have better earrings. This is her only source of income.

María es una mujer joven de 23 años de edad luchadora, emprendedora, soltera con mucha juventud por delante y mucho que aprender en la vida. Ella tiene un grado de educación de primaria completo cursado hasta el 6 grado y vive bajo el mismo techo de sus padres. Ella no pudo continuar estudiando por falta de apoyo económico por parte de sus padres pero le enseñaron a trabajar la tierra para que ella pueda generarse ingresos para cubrir con sus gastos y con otras necesidades personales. El terreno del cual ella es propietaria está a una distancia de 200 metros al cual se traslada a pie diariamente el cual fue obtenido por una herencia de sus padres.

Actualmente ella solicita ayuda para la compra de fertilizantes y abonos para sus cultivos de café ya que estos productos son caros y son necesarios para que sus cultivos estén sanos y libres de roya enfermedad que destruye cultivos completos de café y plagas.

Su meta es mantener su cultivo sano y libre de plagas y otros que lo puedan dañar para poder tener una buena cosecha y así mismo obtener buenas y mejores ganancias para re invertir en sus cultivos ya que este es su único medio de ingreso.

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.
