KIVA Loan for July 2013

Our July KIVA loan goes to Erica Yamileth, a 27-year-old woman who lives in Comayagua Honduras. She has a great future as she is ambitious and a hard worker. She is an entrepreneur, shopkeeper and farmer. She is married with two children who are in school. Erica has completed primary education up to the sixth grade.

Together with her husband Erica grows corn, beans and rice as well as having a small grocery store which she keeps stocked with basic needs for her customers.

One of the challenges she faces in growing her crops is the high prices of agricultural equipment and supplies which promote the growth, quality and health of the plants. The inability to buy these necessary supplies reduces the yield of their fields, and reduces the profits which are left and the family does not benefit from Erica and her husband's hard work as much as they should.

Erica has asked for a loan which she will use to buy agricultural supplies for her crops, hoping this will give them a better harvest, a bigger yield of their crops and better profits. With increased profits she hopes to save enough to make some necessary improvements to her house, including whitewashing, which will prevent damp in the walls, and laying a tiled floor.

But the couple's real dream is to offer their children everything they need to enable them to graduate with university degrees which will give them better opportunities in the future.

We are happy to be able to lend a helping hand to Erica and her husband as they work toward a brighter future for their family.
