Because of the loan, Angelita will be able to grow healthy hogs to sell, growing her business and increasing her income. With the additional income, Angelita will be able to provide better living conditions for her family, provide for their daily needs and renovate their home.
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 Omega, located in the Southern Leyte province of the Philippines, is home to a large population of farmers and fishermen. On average, 11 of the Philippines’ approximately 24 annual typhoons affect this area. Along with poor farming and fishing practices, this contributes to the depletion of natural resources, which affects economic prosperity. Farmers mainly grow rice, coconut, and sugar cane. Fruit and vegetable production is limited, and many families struggle to find sufficient nutrients.
Nearly 50 percent of the area’s residents live in poverty. As a result of economic struggles, many children drop out of school and seek work in places such as the sugar cane fields or urban areas. These children often face exploitation and abuse.
In Omega, World Vision is helping community members create a more sustainable future by providing training in livestock raising and fertilizer production, distributing small loans, and developing businesses. We are also educating families about child rights and operating children’s associations.
