Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Atikah is from Indonesia. She needs a loan of $125 to purchase a glass stand .
Atikah resides in Jakarta and makes a living by selling cookies. She needs to improve and expand her business to be competitive, because there are many other sellers in the area. She wants to attract more customers by improving her services, so she can make a better life for her family.
Atikah is requesting a loan from World Vision so she can purchase a glass stand for her business. With the additional income she will earn from this improvement, she plans to continue to reinvest in her business. She will be able to provide her family’s daily needs and pay the school fees for her three children. In the future, Atikah hopes to be able to rent a larger facility for her business.
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.
