Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Endang is from Indonesia. She has 1 child. She needs a loan of $225 to purchase new cooking utensils and equipment.
Endang runs a catering business in Susukan village, Eastern Jakarta. Changes in food prices and limited equipment have made for a challenging business environment. She also supports her son in Junior High School. She hopes to be able to continue his education through the years to come.
With a loan from World Vision, she plans to purchase new equipment and utensils to increase both her production capacity and level of service. She will be hiring two neighbors to assist in cooking, and hopes to one day open her own 'Warung' (a small restaurant selling Indonesian dishes.)
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.
