Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Georgina is from Mexico. She needs a loan of $475 to buy milk, salt and rennet .
Georgina is married with two children: Alexis and Areli who are attending kindergarten. Georgina is hardworking and ambitious. She has been producing and selling cheese for nine years and chose this activity because it was a very profitable line of work in her community with little competition. Of course, she was also thinking about improving the living conditions of her family.
A World Vision microloan will help Georgina to invest in her business by purchasing, in bulk, milk, salt and rennet. She is confident that with the loan proceeds, she can expand the business and attract more customers. Georgina also has a plan for the future: to buy the right machinery to help her produce more cheese at once for increasing her sales and profits.
The additional income will ensure her children's education and allow Georgina to save to buy the machinery she needs for higher cheese productivity and, ultimately, higher profits.
Retail is a quick and scalable way to begin earning a profit. Many entrepreneurs begin with stalls at markets or even at home and need a loan to expand or increase their inventory. Others may be ready to open a small store. Goods purchased from loan funds range from clothing, grocery or sundry items to jewelry, candy, perfume or health and beauty supplies. Loans in the commerce sector account for around 33% of our loans.
Residents of the community of Cuajinicuilapa are primarily a mix of native Mexicans and Africans, who originally arrived with the Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes. The region’s close proximity to the coast enables residents to participate in a wide range of economic activities, including commerce, agriculture, and fishing.
In Cuajinicuilapa, World Vision is working to improve healthcare and has conducted HIV- and AIDS-awareness campaigns, formed support groups, provided testing, and trained community members to care for those who are affected by the disease. We have also emphasized the importance of education to parents and trained community leaders to provide tutoring to students, helping them improve academic performance.
