Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Annie Rose is from Philippines. She needs a loan of $250 to purchase fertilizer, feed and pigs.
Annie Rose Aboy is a mother of three children: Angela 15, Rose Jane 8 and Jorge 2months. Annie lives with her family in the town of Manjuyod, Negros Oriental where she works very hard farming and raising pigs, to help provide for her family. At this time, Annie lacks the funds needed to maintain her farmland and raise her pigs.
With a loan from World Vision, Annie will be able to purchase more fertilizer for her field, pig feed and more pigs to raise for profit. Annie will also be able to grow and expand her farming/pig raising business, which will allow her to increase her income. With the additional income, Annie will be able to provide for her family's daily needs and pay for her childrens education.
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 Annie Rose Aboy to improve her farming and livestock business. She invested her loan of $250 to purchase fertilizer, feed and pigs.
Annie Rose has now repaid her loan in full. Annie Rose has used her additional income to pay school fees and purchase food and other daily necessities for her family.
Annie Rose's 3 children continue to study in school.
The loan Annie Rose received helped her business expand and the profits she is earning create lasting improvements in her life. In the future Annie Rose hopes to continue sending her children to school, repair or expand their home and expand her current business further.
Thank you for your support of Annie Rose and World Vision Micro. These funds are now being recycled to support another deserving entrepreneur in the same community.
