Francisca is a 41 year old woman. She is single. She completed 4 years of primary education. She is a mother but her children are grown up and independent, living in their own homes. They help their mother with some activities in the fields. She learned farming from her parents, as they have worked in agriculture for many years. This activity has been passed down from generation to generation in her family. Her customers include people from other towns, as well as from her local area, and others.

She has requested economic support from the Comixmul Cooperative for the upkeep and maintenance of her coffee crops. This is necessary in order to avoid infestation by insects and also diseases, for example, blight. To do this, she will buy manure, fertilisers and insecticides.

In the short term, she plans to buy some more land in order to continue growing and improving her crops and her income. Her future plans include making improvements to her home and to re-invest in her crops as long as God allows.

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.
