Lodovisa's Story

Lodovisa is 49 years old and runs a small business selling bread, ampaw (puffed grains), and bocarillo (a Filipino sweet delicacy made from strips of coconut meat and sugar). She lives in World Vision's Haven of Rest I region in Philippines. Lodovisa has sold these items in this area for more than 5 years.

Lodovisa also has a second business where she sells soft drinks, diapers, canned goods, biscuits, vinegar, ketchup, soy sauce, and noodles. This second business provides a supplemental income which Lodovisa needs to support her family.

Lodovisa has requested a loan from World Vision to expand her business. With the loan, she would like to buy more food items to sell and repair her karaoke machine.

Lodovisa and her husband have 1 child, who is currently studying in school.

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.

Lodovisa's Community

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.
