Kiran is from Philippines. She needs a loan of $275 Buy fertilizer.
Kiran has been farming since 2006 in Espanola, Palawan. Although it is a lot of hard work under the heat of the sun, she is inspired by her five children. She is struggling to keep up with the household daily needs and farming maintenance. World Vision loan is her only hope.
The loan would afford her sacks of fertilizer for vegetables and corn.She is also planning to have another business aside from farming. Hopefully, she can have a Sari-sari store someday too.
Her additional income will go to her family's needs: daily consumption, household expenses and savings.
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.
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.
