Channaku's Story

Channaku is a farmer who is also entering the cattle fattening industry, since he cannot earn enough from his crops to provide for his large family. A loan from World Vision will help Channaku start his cattle raising business by allowing him to purchase food and medicine for the cattle.

Channaku's cattle raising business will be a dependable source of income that will help him provide for his seven children. He plans to sell his cattle as meat at the local market, especially during the busy seasons before holidays like Christmas and Easter.

Industry Info

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.
