Her marriage produced three children. A 17-year-old daughter who is attending secondary school and a 12-year-old daughter who is also in secondary school still live with her; her eldest daughter lives in a separate home. Her two daughters still living with her help with the coffee growing; weeding, feeding and picking the beans. The land they farm on was acquired through their own efforts; her husband, her daughters and she have worked together to have better quality of life. The land they work is 20 meters from home and they walk to it daily.
María is asking for a Comixmul loan to buy fertilizer and manure to provide maintenance for her coffee crop. Her dream is to be able to increase her coffee crops, to be the best producers in the zone and to earn higher income in order to also improve their daughters’ lives by means of schooling and other aspects necessary for their growth and learning.
María está solicitando un financiamiento a la cooperativa COMIXMUL para la compra de fertilizante y abono para el mantenimiento de su cultivo de café.
Su sueño es poder incrementar sus cultivos de café, ser los mejores productores de la zona para obtener mejores ingresos y de esa forma también mejorar la vida de sus hijas en el estudio y en otros aspectos que son necesarios para su crecimiento y conocimiento.
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.
