Gladis Ondina
Gladis, at the age of forty-three, continues persevering and striving to fulfill every one of her dreams, goals, and hopes, since she has a few of each. She is a homemaker and mother of six children. Four of her children got married and live in different homes. The other two still live with her, helping her with all of the housework and working with their father in the fields to get ahead. Gladis considers herself to be a strong and very capable woman, considering that when it's not the growing season for coffee, she works for a coffee exporting company; in this way she also gets new customers for her product at the end of each harvest. She's been practicing the various activities of the coffee business since her childhood, considering that it was her parents who taught her to work. The land that she works together with her partner and their children is her own; it is located at a distance of thirty minutes from her home.

Her goals are to continue increasing her coffee fields by purchasing more land, strengthening her children's inheritance; however, her dream is to be able to continue providing for her children so that they can continue studying, and that they graduate and become professionals, securing their future.

Therefore, today she is applying for a loan which she will use to buy fertilizers, manure, and foliar sprays, among other inputs, that will help her coffee fields be more productive and attractive to her customers since the coffee business is the source of income for her home.

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.
