Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Ana is from Philippines. She needs a loan of $250 to purchase seeds and fertilizer.
Ana Nasareno is a 56 year old mother of six children, she lives with her family in Naic, Cavite Philippines. Since 2000, Ana has been working hard farming vegetables and raising hogs to help earn a living for her family. At this time, Ana lacks the funds needed to sustain and continue her vegetable farming and hog raising business.
With a loan from World Vision, Ana will be able to purchase fertilizer and seeds for her vegetable farm. Because of the loan, she'll be able to grow and produce healthy crops of vegetables to sell for profit within her community. Ana will also be able to grow her business and increase her income. With the addtitional income, Ana will be able to provide for her family's daily needs and renovate her home.
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.
The community of Children’s Helper is located in the province of Cavite in the Philippine islands, to the southwest of Manila. Like most of the Philippines, the region experiences dry weather from December through June and a rainy season from July through November. Floods and typhoons are common threats.
Fishing is a major source of income, with catches including milkfish, crabs, tilapia, mussels, and oysters. Other income-generating activities include agriculture, livestock production, and industrial jobs. Often, families do not earn enough to meet basic needs and children drop out of school to find work. Many children are underweight. The community has access to a shallow well and several pumping stations that provide them with water for household needs.
In Children’s Helper, World Vision is assisting families with income generation through loans and retail projects such as making and selling soap. We are also providing medical checkups and healthcare for children.
