Novelyn is from Philippines. She has 2 children. She needs a loan of $150 additional capital for her business.
Novely's place is in a good spot for business. Her house is close to the sea where most people are good at fishing. It is also close to the highway which allows her husband to drive their tricycle for a profit.
In her community, there are also a number of Sari-sari stores. She serves as a supplier of soft drinks. She earns Php700.00/week from this business.
The loan would allow her to procure more soft drinks for her customers. She plans to expand her soft drink business and negotiate factory prices from salesmen to maximize her profit. She also plans to raise hogs in the coming days.
Any income will be used for her children's needs and house renovation.
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 Mountain View is located in a boot-shaped province on Negros Island in the Philippines. Home to Mt. Kanlaon, an active volcano, the area is rich with natural resources. With convenient access to a variety of markets, the community is emerging as a promising frontier for investors.
Economic activities revolve around agriculture, fishery, and forestry. Environmental degradation is a pressing concern. The region has been identified as one of the lowest income-earning areas in the country. Families struggle to acquire proper nutrients, and some do not have access to clean water. Malnutrition and disease are constant concerns. Families are hindered by poor road conditions, and many children drop out of school.
In Mountain View, World Vision has provided community members with key employment skills, including training in food processing and assistance in livestock rearing. We have also provided medical and housing assistance, supplemental food for malnourished children, fees and materials for children to attend school, and educational support for child laborers.
