Idah is from Indonesia. She has 1 child. She needs a loan of $350 to purchase poultry, cages and feed.
Idah Yatinningsih is a mother of one child, who lives with her family in Surabaya1. Idah works very hard at raising poultry to sell within her community, to help earn a living for her family. At this time, Idah lacks the funds needed to maintain and continue her poultry business.
With a loan from World Vision, Idah will be able to purchase more poultry, feed and cages to house her poultry. Idah will also be able to grow her business and increase her income. With the additional income, Idah will be able to provide for her family's daily needs and create a savings.
In areas where the poor live alongside the more affluent, businesses in the service sector can be very successful. Services include flower cultivation, tailoring/sewing, transportation, repair work, beauty salons and barber shops, and restaurants. Loans are needed to begin, expand, or sustain business with tools and supplies. Loans given to entrepreneurs in the service sector account for around 7% of our loans.
World Vision began working with the people of Indonesia in 1957, when we hosted a pastors conference. In 1961, a childcare program opened to help orphans and refugee children. By 1967 the program grew to assist some 2,000 children. During the 1970s, World Vision donors sponsored more than 8,000 children, and community development work began in several areas. Today, U.S. sponsors alone support 20,000 children in six community development areas, including Surabaya.
Ministry of Education data shows that many children living in the slums of Surabaya are not attending school. Surveys also found that high numbers of infants die from preventable diseases such as pneumonia and diarrhea. This community has schools and health clinics, but the most common factor preventing access is poverty. Families can’t afford school fees and materials, or the cost of clinic visits and medicines. To address these issues, World Vision and community members have determined that improved income opportunities and health and education projects are critical. Community instruction on the importance of child rights and education also were deemed vital to community success.
World Vision began working alongside families in the slums of Surabaya in 2000, and programs designed to provide lasting, holistic, community development are directly targeting approximately 2,045 sponsored children and their families.
