Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Flordeliza is from Philippines. She needs a loan of $300 to buy additional inventory of clothing and bags.
Since 2000 Flordeliza has been reselling clothing and bags in the community of Naic, Cavite province in the Phillipines. Her income helps support her family including her one child.
With a loan from World Vision she will be able to buy additional stocks in bulk for a better profit. She dreams of improving her business so that it will become stable and more prosperous for her family. Any additional income will be for renovating her house.
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.
