Emeliano is from Philippines. He needs a loan of $125 for corn and hog raising business.
From Negros Oriental, Emeliano Gador continues his business raising farm animals. He also plants corn, raises goats and hogs to support his children Leizel-19 and Cristel-14, Sharmyn-12. His average income per day is only P80.00.
Due to limited capital, he is applying for a loan, so he can continue his hog raising business. For him, this is his only hope. This will help sustain his business and let him stay in this livelihood for a longer time.
He is 43 years old, but he knows that, with right funding, he can achieve more in the future.
His income will be for his family's basic needs.
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.
