Rosa Herlinda
is a 34 year old woman. She is married and the mother of 5 children. The 3 youngest are in different grades of primary school and the 2 oldest work and don't go to school. She was able to finish one year of primary school thanks to her parents' support. She has experience growing coffee since she has done it for more than 9 years with her husband. The land they grow on in their own thanks to many years' savings. The land is located 6 kilometers from her house and she goes by car and sometimes on foot with her two oldest children, who work as helpers.

Right now she is asking for help to buy a greenhouse to grow coffee and then enlarge her crop later and have a larger quantity of product planted.

In the future she hopes to have enough capital to be able to buy a plot of land and grow more coffee. Her goals are to educate her children and leave them a piece of land they can make income from and not have to work on rented land.

Doña Rosa es una mujer de 34 años de edad, casada y madre de 5 hijos de los cuales los 3 menores estudian en la primaria en diferentes años de educación y los 2 mayores trabajan y no estudian. Ella tiene un grado de educación primaria completo el cual pudo terminar gracias al apoyo de sus padres. Ella tiene experiencia en el cultivo de café ya que lo realiza hace más de 9 años en compañía de su esposo y el terreno que ellos cultivan es propio gracias a los ahorros de muchos años. El terreno está ubicado a una distancia de 6 kilómetros de distancia de su casa de habitación al cual se trasportan en carro y otras veces a pie en compañía de sus 2 hijos mayores que son los que trabajan en la asistencia.

Actual mente ella solicita ayuda para la compra de un vivero de café el cual cultivara posteriormente para agrandar más su cultivo y tener una mayor cantidad de producto sembrado.

En un futuro ella espera poder tener suficiente capital para poder comprar un pedazo de tierra y poder cultivar
más café ya que sus metas son trabajar para el estudio de sus hijos y poder heredarles un pedazo a cada uno para que puedan obtener ingresos y no trabajar un terreno alquilado.

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.
