Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Wynne is from Philippines. She needs a loan of $250 to purchase fertilizer and feed.
Wynne is a hardworking mother to her two sons, ages 14 and 20. They live in the town of Manjuyod, Negros Oriental where the primary source of income is mostly limited to farming and hog raising; this is also Wynne's source of income.
Wynne is requesting a World Vision microloan to further sustain her business. She will use her loan to purchase, in bulk, fertilizer for healthier crops and a maximum yield, as well as for quality feed for her hogs.
Any additional income will benefit Wynne's family in terms of providing a better diet and to pay for school fees. She will use any savings to reinvest in her farm so she can continue to provide her local commmunity with quality hogs and crop 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.
The community of Mountain View is located in a boot-shaped province on Negros Island in the Philippines. Home to Mt. Kanlaon, an active volcano, the area is rich with natural resources. With convenient access to a variety of markets, the community is emerging as a promising frontier for investors.
Economic activities revolve around agriculture, fishery, and forestry. Environmental degradation is a pressing concern. The region has been identified as one of the lowest income-earning areas in the country. Families struggle to acquire proper nutrients, and some do not have access to clean water. Malnutrition and disease are constant concerns. Families are hindered by poor road conditions, and many children drop out of school.
In Mountain View, World Vision has provided community members with key employment skills, including training in food processing and assistance in livestock rearing. We have also provided medical and housing assistance, supplemental food for malnourished children, fees and materials for children to attend school, and educational support for child laborers.
Thank you for supporting the small loan for Wynne Bohol to improve her farming and livestock business. She invested her loan of $250 to purchase fertilizer and feed for her hogs.
Wynne has now repaid her loan in full. She used her additional income to purchase food and other basic necessities for her family and purchase school supplies.
Wynne's 2 children continue to study in school.
The profits she is earning create lasting improvements in her life. In the future Wynne hopes to continue sending her children to school, repair or expand their home and expand her business further.
Thank you for your support of Wynne and World Vision Micro. These funds are now being recycled to support another deserving entrepreneur in the same community.
