Almaz's Story

Almaz Dejene is a mother of four, who lives in a rural part of Ethiopia. She works very hard at her sheep fattening business.

With a loan from World Vision, Almaz can expand her business and increase her income. “If I get a loan, I can buy sheep and when they become fat, I can take them to the local market to sale. I can easily make a profit,” she said.

With the additional income, Almaz would be able to be a better provider for her family. “I can provide my family with a healthy diet. I can send them to school, I can cover the expenses for their clothing,” she said.

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.
