Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Reyna is from Mexico. She needs a loan of $400 to buy meat and cheese.
Reyna sells meat, cheese, and fish to help her husband, Ricardo, with the household expenses. She will use a World Vision loan to buy more meat and cheese to sell.
When Reyna has more meat and cheese to sell, her income will increase. This will help her continue to expand her business by purchasing important supplies like a blender. She is saving up to open her own butcher's shop so that people can buy meat directly from her.
Reyna and Ricardo have a daughter who is married and a son who is studying to become a veterinarian. Reina will use her additional income to improve her family's quality of life and provide her children with a college education.
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 small community of Rio Santa Catarina, which derives its name from a local river, has a mountainous terrain and warm climate. Economic opportunities in this community are diverse as a result of its close proximity to the growing city of Ometepec.
In Rio Santa Catarina, World Vision is assisting farmers with production and marketing; educating families on disaster preparedness; and working to improve education through tutoring and teacher training. We are also providing healthcare services, nutritional training, and housing assistance.
