Gloria Jamileth
Gloria is 31 years old and the mother of two young children. She and her partner plant and raise coffee. Gloria's parents taught her about cultivating coffee from a very young age, since it was her family's only source of income and the only way to cover necessary expenses such as clothing, food, hard-to-obtain medicines, and others.

The land that she and her partner grow on is their own, as her parents gave them a piece of ground that she could work and earn income from. Currently she wishes to protect and preserve her crops, making sure that they don't become blighted or infected by the borer, a damaging, destructive insect.

Gloria has requested financing through the COMIXMUL cooperative to purchase supplies such as urea, manure, herbicides, and fertilizers among other things to protect her coffee harvest.

Her plans for the future include expanding her planting through the purchase of additional land. More land will mean more coffee and greater income for her family and her home. She dreams of giving her children a better education, seeing them grow and graduate from college.

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.
