Stories of Women Rising

​How Sweet Impact helped women turn oppression into opportunity through micro-loans.

Love consists in desiring to give what is our own to another and feeling his delight as our own.
— Emanuel Swedonborg - (1688-1722) was a Swedish scientist, philosopher, theologian, revelator, and, in the eyes of some, Christian mystic.

Kemlay, Cambodia  

39 year old mother of two,  Kemlay  lives with her family in the Leuk Daek region in Cambodia. To help provide for her family, Kemlay has been growing rice and corn, along with operating her small grocery store for the last six years. Kemlay requested a loan from World Vision to buy fertilizer and stock for her store. The loan will help her to expand her business and increase her income which will help her provide for her family's needs so that her children can stay in school.

Josephine, Kenya

Fifty two year old mother of four, Josephine lives with her family in the Yatta region in Kenya. This region has been adopted by World Vision. When we help someone in one of those communities, we are helping the whole village rise.

To learn more about World Vision's holistic approach toward helping a community thrive, see World Vision's Long Term Commitment.

Like Juliana, Josephine has been operating her general store within her community, to help provide for her family. Josephine requested a loan from World Vision to buy more food stock. Now she has the opportunity to expand her business, increase her income and help to provide for her family's daily needs. Also, providing loans to entrepreneurs like Josephine helps her community establish businesses and jobs and daily commerce. With Juliana's increased income, she can reinvest further in her community by buying food, clothing, paying for education, or improving her home.
