Your gift to help a hardworking entrepreneur will double in impact thanks to a generous World Vision partner.
Listianah is from Indonesia. She has 3 children. She needs a loan of $125 to purchase chicken nuggets, instant noodles and other inventory.
Listianah helps her husband support their family by operating a snack selling business. She sells snacks for children on a stand next to her house. Her main challenge is significant competition in the area, and a lack of investment capital to expand her business. Her goal is to make her business more profitable so she can improve living conditions for her family.
Listianah is requesting a loan from World Vision so she can purchase chicken nuggets, instant noodles, and other snacks to create more variety in her product inventory and attract more customers. With the additional income she will earn, she will be able to provide the basic necessities for her family and pay the school fees for her three children. In the future, Listianah plans to continue to invest in her business and eventually open a much larger stand with a greater variety of products for sale.
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.
