Gladys's story

Hello Kiva community!

Gladys, a 26-year-old mom of three school-going children, grew up in a poor home in Sotik before she got married and settled. Today, she lives in Sotik with her husband and children.

Gladys manages her farmland and sells milk and vegetables to educate her children and care for her family. She has always wanted to be an independent woman and achieve, so she engages in risky agricultural projects in the pursuit of profit. Despite the hurdles in her life, she finds the courage to move forward and meet her family's basic needs.

Although Gladys has been earning some income from her farm, not everything has been easy. Her farm's output is reduced due to a lack of fertilizer and good seeds, as well as by pests and disease. So Gladys is seeking a loan to buy farm inputs, such as fertilizer and seeds, to expand her farm.

Gladys hopes you will consider her loan request, because it will change her life and improve the welfare of her family.
