Evangeline is from Philippines. She has 3 children. She needs a loan of $225 to purchase piglets and feed.
Evangeline has a small business raising hogs. With a loan from World Vision, Evangeline hopes to purchase more feed for her animals. Then she will be able to expand her business and the additional income will help provide for her family’s daily necessities.
Evangeline has three children. An investment in this loan will help Evangeline to provide a better life for her family. In the future, Evangeline hopes to purchase more piglets so her business will continue to grow. With the additional income, she wants to send her children to school, and to help with the medical expenses of a family member.
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 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.
Evangeline has invested her loan into her hog raising business. The price of hog feed has increased. The help from the loan allowed her to purchase the feed she needs to sustain her hogs daily needs. She was also able to purchase two more piglets.
