Glenda Dina
Glenda is a 27 year old mother of 4 young children who attend school. She is partnered in a common law marriage and she could not complete primary school because of the lack of financial support, as her parents did not have many economic resources.
Thanks to her business venture and their trust in the commitment she has, the cooperative COMIXMUL has supported her every single time she has requested funding to invest in her potato crops because they believe in small producers and supporting this necessary sector with confidence. Thanks to this support, Glenda generates revenue for the maintenance of her household and family which helps with buying shoes, medicines with many restrictions, clothing, and more that are necessary for the minding and development of health.
It was thanks to her parents that Glenda learned to work the land at an early age because they have been farmers for generations and have always worked the land. Her customers are the different intermediaries who come to the area as well as neighbors and friends. Her crops are located 100 meters away from her house which means that she has to walk to attend to her crops.
Her plans and future goals are to be able to fix her house that needs a decent roof, plaster on the walls, and a cement floor so that they can avoid the contamination of viruses of the respiratory system that are passed between family members due to the humidity in the walls.
As a mother, she will continue to support her children with all of her strength so that they can graduate to the next level and be good people in life. So today she again requests financial support for the purchase of agricultural inputs so that she may attend to her potato crops.

Glenda es una joven de 27 años de edad, madre de 4 hijos que son menores los cuales estudian, en estado civil de unión libre la cual cuenta con un grado de escolaridad de primaria incompleta que no pudo culminar por la falta de apoyo económico ya que sus padres son de escasos recursos. Gracias al emprendimiento, confianza y compromiso que ella tiene, la cooperativa COMIXMUL la ha apoyado en todas y cada una de las veces que ella ha solicitado financiamiento para poder invertir en sus cultivos de papa creyendo en el pequeño productor y depositando confianza en esta clase de sector necesitado. Gracias a este rubro Glenda genera ingresos para el mantenimiento de su hogar y su familia con lo cual ayuda a la compra de calzado, medicinas con muchas restricciones, ropa, etc. que son necesarias para el cuidado y desarrollo de la salud. Fue gracias a sus padres que ella aprendió a trabajar la tierra a muy temprana edad ya que ellos por generaciones han sido agricultores y siempre han trabajado la tierra. Sus clientes son los diferentes intermediarios que llegan a la zona, vecinos y amigos. Sus cultivos están ubicados a 100 metros de distancia desde su casa de habitación a los cuales se traslada caminando por lo que también tiene la ventaja de asistir sus cultivos.
Sus planes y metas a futuro son los de poder arreglar su casa de habitación misma que necesita un techo digno, repello en sus paredes, y un piso de cemento evitando de esta manera la contaminación de virus en el sistema respiratorio por medio de la humedad en las paredes entre otras que están como familia propensas a sufrir. Como madre seguir apoyando a sus hijos con todas sus fuerzas para que ellos puedan graduarse a nivel superior y puedan ser personas de bien en la vida. Por lo que hoy día ella solicita una vez más apoyo financiero para la compra de insumos agrícolas con los que podrá asistir sus cultivos de papa.

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.
