Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Erubiel is from Mexico. She needs a loan of $375 to purchase livestock and pigs.
Erubiel is 34 years old. He studied high school and is currently married. He has one child and lives in the community of Tetela, which is located in the sugarcane zone of the State of Oaxaca.
Seven years ago, he began his business selling pork and beef in order to support his family and to give a better future to his children. Erubiel sells meat on weekends from his house. Sometimes he takes orders and then delivers the cow or pig. Other times, the meat is already prepared.
Erubiel needs a loan to purchase pigs, cows, and plastic bags. This will help him grow his business and ensure his ability to provide a better quality of life for his family.
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 Vincente Camalote is located in the state of Oaxaca, about two hours from the city of Tierra Blanca. The climate is warm and the landscape is lush and green. Many residents participate in agriculture, primarily harvesting sugar cane. Other economic activities include commerce and fishing.
