She also owns a small store that enables her to earn an income for her family and with which she helps her husband pay the daily household expenses.
She grows chili, tomato, and granadilla which her husband taught her to do, and her customers are her neighbors and friends. They come looking for her products because of their quality and the care she puts into harvesting and processing them.

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.
