Gilma Yamileth
Gilma, 39 years old, is a determined, enterprising woman who is thankful to God. She has a great desire to improve and to move forward. She is a married mother of two dependent children. They both study in primary school. Gilma completed school through 4th grade but then couldn't continue due to the lack of financial help. Her parents did not make much income and were unable to help her. Since she was a young girl, Gilma has worked by cultivating coffee, which her family still does today. Her parents taught her how to work the land over 20 years ago. This work continues to be her parents' only form of income. The land that Gilma uses was inherited from her father so she could work and earn income for her household. The land is two kilometers away from her home so she walks there every day.

Currently, she is requesting help to buy fertilizer to perform maintenance on her coffee plants so that there will be a healthy and profitable harvest. This will allow her to earn income, make a profit, and continue investing in her crop.

Her dream is to expand her coffee crop over time, giving her children the opportunity to get a university education and prepare for a professional career. This will help them to succeed and grow as individuals in an environment where they can easily adapt.

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.
