Adriana Reyes has a small basic store and a telephone service. She sells products like sugar, flour, detergent, etc. and with this business she helps her husband to give a better life to their daughters Daniela and Salma.

In areas where the poor live alongside the more affluent, businesses in the service sector can be very successful. Services include flower cultivation, tailoring/sewing, transportation, repair work, beauty salons and barber shops, and restaurants. Loans are needed to begin, expand, or sustain business with tools and supplies. Loans given to entrepreneurs in the service sector account for around 7% of our loans.
The community of Vincente Camalote is located in the state of Oaxaca, about two hours from the city of Tierra Blanca. The climate is warm and the landscape is lush and green. Many residents participate in agriculture, primarily harvesting sugar cane. Other economic activities include commerce and fishing.
World Vision is working to improve the health of families in Vincente Camalote by providing housing materials for the improvement of living spaces; restoring water tanks for access to clean water; and supporting medical treatment and HIV- and AIDS-awareness campaigns. We are also supporting education by training teachers and tutors and providing spiritual-formation workshops for teens.

While World Vision has been giving microloans to the enterprising poor for over 20 years, Micro is a brand-new program. Our field staff has received updated training regarding the importance of prompt reporting back to donors, and you should be receiving an update soon.
Please let me assure you that what happened in this case is not typical of World Vision or Micro. We continue to be committed to providing you and all of our donors with consistent high-quality feedback.
