Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Serkalem is from Ethiopia. She needs a loan of $275 to buy more sheep for fattening.
Serkalem raises sheep and sells them at the local market when they become fat. However, she struggles to keep replenishing her flock of sheep because of the increasing price of young sheep. Serkalem will buy more sheep with the loan she receives from World Vision.
When Serkalem has sheep to sell in the market, her neighbors no longer have to travel long distances to buy sheep meat.
Her sheep fattening business benefits both her community and her family. Serkalem is the mother of three children, and she will use her increased income to improve her family's lifestyle by providing them with clothing, healthy food, and an education.
Serkalem wants to continue to expand her sheep fattening business. In the future, she would like to begin fattening cattle as well.
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.
