World Vision’s response
Work means dignity for parents. It means food, health care and education for their children. And with clients repaying at a rate of 98 percent, World Vision has proven that microloans to the poor are a smart investment.
Larger loans—Successful repayment of smaller loans makes clients eligible for larger individual loans, helping them to grow their businesses and employ others in the community.
Community needs—To truly escape the cycle of poverty, poor entrepreneurs need access to clean water, stable food sources, health care and education for their families. World Vision offers microloans, along with these life-saving interventions, in more communities each year in order to bring lasting
Technology—World Vision identifies tools and technology that may not be available locally—such as new plant varieties— and helps business owners purchase what they need using microloans.
Information—Just like any business owner, the poor need information to run their small enterprises well. World Vision helps launch other small businesses and partnerships, such as cell phone services, that can provide access to information.
