    Learn More
    Roselia lives in Bataraza, Palawan, Philippines, where she has been a fruit vendor since 2009. She would like to have a bigger fruit stall in order to increase her sales and profits, but with five children to provide for, she has very limited funds with which she can grow her business. A loan from World Vision will allow Roselia to expand her business to include seasoning, cooking oil, soy sauce, eggs, vinegar, coconut, onion garlic, salt and other items. She is confident that by stocking these additional items, she will be able to increase her sales and profitability. The additional income will allow Roselia to better provide for her family's daily needs, as well as the education expenses for her five children.

    Elesea and her family live in Hagnaya, Carmen, Cebu. She spends the day with her family, taking care of her five young children while weaving abaca. Abaca weaving is a great business for Elesea, because she can stay at home with her family and earn money. She is requesting a loan to purchase more abaca to weave. With more abaca, she will be able to accommodate more orders and expand her business. The income she earns will be used to meet her family's basic needs and to pay for her children to attend school.
