Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Giralyn is from Philippines. She has 2 children. She needs a loan of $125 to purchase merchandise for store.
Giralyn Manulat is a 32 year old mother of two children: Jodgie-12 and Charisse-6. She lives with her family in Carmen, Cebu, where she has been operating and maintaining her sari-sari store, (convenience store) since 2004. Giralyn at this time lacks the funds needed to purchase more merchandise for the store.
With a loan from World Vision, Giralyn will be able to purchase more merchandise for her store. Because of the loan, she'll also be able to grow her business, attract new customers and increase her income. With the additional income, Giralyn will be able to provide for her family's daily needs and pay for her childrens education.
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.
World Vision began working with the people of the Philippines in Manila in 1954. Childcare projects began shortly thereafter to help fund orphanages and daycare centers, health-care programs, educational assistance, hygiene, and spiritual enrichment projects. The Good Shepherd’s Fold Orphanage Project provided a gas stove, 600 reference books, musical instruments, vegetable seeds, and 3,000 textbooks to children on the island of Guimaras.
From 1960 to 1969, sponsorship continued to grow with the addition of the Mercyville orphanage in the village of Polonulig on the island of Mindanao. In addition, the Philippines Medical Boat Mission Project ministered to suffering people in remote, sea-locked villages. Medical and
evangelical teams provided health care through two- and three-day clinics in churches and homes.
World Vision opened the Manila office in 1972. Staff sought to improve communities and continued sharing the message of the Gospel. By the end of the decade World Vision sponsored 29,750 children. Community development projects provided a comprehensive approach to integrate
development among the small islands, which typically have few resources and are inaccessible during rough seas. Projects there sought to promote fishing, health care, sanitation, and education. The Ilin Island Fishing Project benefited 600 people by promoting self-sufficiency through agricultural production, increased fishing harvests, and improved water supplies.
