Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Rohmah is from Indonesia. She needs a loan of $350 to purchase a generator .
Rohmah operates small business in Jakarta. Her business is renting large batteries and generators for weddings and other events. She is facing the challenge of limited capital to improve her business. She needs to expand her business by purchasing more equipment to rent in order to take advantage of customer demand.
A World Vision loan will allow Rohmah to purchase another generator. This will allow her to take full advantage of the wedding season when customer demand is high. With the additional income she will earn, she will be able to provide the basic necessities for her four children, create a savings, and continue to invest in her business. In the future, Rohmah plans to open a second branch of her rental business.
In areas where the poor live alongside the more affluent, businesses in the service sector can be very successful. Services include flower cultivation, tailoring/sewing, transportation, repair work, beauty salons and barber shops, and restaurants. Loans are needed to begin, expand, or sustain business with tools and supplies. Loans given to entrepreneurs in the service sector account for around 7% of our loans.

Thank you for supporting a small business loan for Rohmah to expand her retail and services business. After receiving the loan from World Vision, she invested the $350 to purchase a generator. Rohmah has been repaying her loan on time with her new profits. She makes weekly payments of $7.
In addition to repaying her loan, Rohmah is using additional income to pay school fees, purchase food for the family and expand the current business. Rohmah's 4 children continue to study in school.
