Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Hawa is from Ethiopia. She needs a loan of $200 to buy an ox .
Hawa is a farmer with one child. She has a small farm. She is a hard-working woman. She needs to expand her agricultural business. “I need help to develop my small farm into a sustainable livelihood for my family. I hope [a] World Vision micro loan will enable me to run my business effectively,” she said.
“I like working on agriculture because I can generate income. My intention is to strengthen this business but I cannot do it due to shortage of money," says Hawa. Her income goes towards providing for her family's daily needs. The additional income would improve their living conditions. “The increased income will go towards sending my children to school and giving my family a more nutritious diet. In the long term, as things improve, I hope to take on two assistants, thereby creating jobs for other people in my community."
Hawa has a plan to expand her business. She wants to participate in other income generating activities. In the future, she also has a dream to participate in cattle fattening.
By keeping her business growing, she wants to supply more crops to the local market for profit. The local people also like her agricultural products. Expanding her business would also benefit her community as the people could buy her products.
The Agriculture business sector covers all farming and livestock activities. Some entrepreneurs request loans to help in securing supplies and equipment. Others want to buy more animals to breed or purchase feed and medicines. The majority of our loan clients live in rural communities where agriculture is already understood as a business model. It is for this reason that approximately 50% of our loans are in the agricultural sector.

Thank you for supporting a small business loan for Hawa Mohammed to expand her farming business. After receiving the loan from World Vision, she invested the $200 to buy an ox to help with farming.
Hawa has been repaying her loan on time with her new profits. She makes weekly payments of $3.
In addition to repaying her loan, Hawa is using additional income to provide healthcare for her family, start a new business and do home repairs.
Hawa's child continues to study in school.
