Zenebu is from Ethiopia. She needs a loan of $150 to buy fertilizer.
A mother of four children, Zenebu is a strong woman who knows a lot about agriculture, having gained experience from her parents. Though her business is doing well, she is eager to expand it. However, a lack of financial resources hinders her ability to run it in the way she desires.
With a loan from World Vision Zenebu will be able to buy fertilizer and select seeds to maximize her harvest. This will allow her to generate more income, which will go towards improving her family's living conditions, providing them with a healthier diet, and sending her children to school. Additionally, by supplying various grains to the market, the locals will also benefit.
In the future, Zenebu hopes to fulfill her dream of building her own house in the town.
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.
Angolola is located about 68 miles northeast of Addis Ababa, Ethiopia’s capital city. It is comprised of 19 villages. The area is home to 93,178 people, of whom approximately 3,300 are children who are orphaned or otherwise vulnerable.
Major problems identifi ed in the region are related to severe poverty and a high HIV prevalence rate. To care for the unprecedented, growing number of orphans, vulnerable children, and people living with AIDS in their community, Angolola citizens need assistance. There are simply too many struggling
children and people living with AIDS in Angolola for the community to manage. They suffer from malnutrition, lack of emotional support, and limited access to food, clothes, and shelter. The children also are at risk of falling prey to abuse, exploitation, and HIV infection.
