Cirila Suyapa
Suyapa, is an enterprising and determined 38 year old women who works at home doing household tasks from the early hours of the morning and is also a farmer specialising in growing corn, beans and coffee. She learned to work from a young age as she enjoyed the process of growing crops, realising that there is more to it then digging a hole and planting a seed - it is also the care, fertilisation, cleaning etc. that produce good crops. She also learnt to make tamales and bread from her mother-in-law and she and her eldest daughter sell these products.

She is a mother of 5 children, of which 2 are in secondary school, 2 are in primary school and the youngest is still at home. Alongside her husband, she works hard daily to fulfill her dream of seeing her children with university educations and a better quality of life and a better future.

Today, she is asking for a loan to buy agricultural products to protect her coffee, corn and beans, such as 8 bags of nutricafe, 7 bags of formula 18-46-0, 6 bags of urea, 7 bags of fertiliser and 3 litres of alto 10 SL.

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.
