Glendy Merary
Glendy, 30, is a single mother and a hard-working entrepreneur who travels by bus to her place of work which is about 200 kilometers from home. This is so she can provide for her daughter who attends school. Glendy works as a factory operator and her brother takes care of maintaining and providing technical assistance to the coffee crop while she is working. She completed her primary education and her mother and brother live with her at home. Her mother is the one who taught her about agriculture some time ago. Glendy and her brother own the land since they inherited from their mother's family.

Her dream for the future is to get a university degree corresponding to her agricultural knowledge. This will help her improve production and technical aspects of her crop growing since it is the main source of income for her and her family. She is requesting a loan through COMIXMUL to buy six bags of Nutricafe, six bags of Formula 18-46-0, six bags of urea, six bags of fertilizer and two liters of ALTO 10 SL. These products will help her crop produce a good harvest.

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.
