A loan of $1,425 helped to purchase agricultural inputs for her potato crops.

Glenda Dina's story

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.
