Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Delia is from Philippines. She has 3 children. She needs a loan of $200 additional capital.
Delia Badenas is an expert when it comes to cooking "Puto Kuchinta", a snack food loved by Filipinos. For 13 years, this is her business earning P300/day for the family.
She has 3 children who are already adults. She wants to increase the volume of her production so she can increase her profits too. She will be happy to see her family's life comfortable someday.
Her income will be for family daily consumption and reinvestment in the same business.
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.
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.
Delia used her loan to help with her restaurant/ eatery business. She was able to purchase additional ingredients for kuchinta such as brown sugar, lihia (water lye) and all-purpose flour. She is able to produce more and expects to have a better profit daily. She is repaying her loan on schedule. Thank you for supporting Delia and World Vision Micro!
Delia's business continues to be a part of her daily routine. She is thankful for the World Vision loan because it allows her to make a living in spite of her age. In addition to her business, she is also helping an eatery and RTW (Ready-to-wear) business which is owned by a neighbor. This adds for her income.
Her loan has been repaid in full, 100%.
These loan funds are now available to help another worthy entrepreneur in her community. Thank you for supporting Delia and World Vision Micro!
