Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Viviana is from Mexico. She needs a loan of $325 to purchase taco ingredients, plastic dishes and cooking oil .
Viviana is thirty six years old and helps to provide for her family by preparing and selling tacos. She moves her business from place to place, preparing tacos in different locations. She is gaining more customers every day, and she needs investment capital to expand her business to keep up with the demand.
Viviana is requesting a loan from World Vision so she can purchase chili, tortillas, meat, tomatoes, onion, coriander, plastic dishes and cooking oil. With the additional income she will earn as her business grows, she will be able to help provide her family’s basic needs and to pay the school fees for her two children, Oscar and Juan. Her husband, Martin, is a land worker.
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.
