“If there are poor among you, in one of the towns of the land the LORD your God is giving you, do not be selfish or greedy toward them. But give freely to them, and freely lend them whatever they need.” –Deuteronomy 15:7-8 (NVC)
Scripture is clear about our responsibility to love and serve those living in poverty regardless of race, faith, ethnicity and gender.
With approximately 3 billion living on less than $2.50 per day, join us in our mission to empower our clients to become self-sufficient through their God-given talents.
Rather than a “hand-out”, we give our clients a “hand-up” by enabling them through small business loans, savings accounts, microinsurance, business training and client-focused technology.
Our goal is to empower them to lift themselves out of poverty in a sustained manner with dignity to transform lives, strengthen families and build communities.
Our clients are partners, not charity cases. We walk and work with the world's marginalized women and men. They can build a business. They can provide for their family. They can lead. And we empower them by investing in the God-given talents of each of our clients.
In fact, we see many of our clients like the Proverbs 31 woman:
Let her deeds publicly declare her praise. - Proverbs 31 (excerpts)
For less than the cost of a cup of coffee per day, you can help fund the loan to an aspiring entrepreneur for one year. When you help fund a small business loan to a mother or father, you help feed many children and create jobs for the whole community.
Unlike a typical charity, your donation benefits multiple people for many years to come. When the loan you helped fund is repaid, that money is lent out to other entrepreneurs, and again and again. It’s about believing in the people we help.
It’s a sustainable model that helps to lift people out of poverty in a real and permanent way. It’s about investing in opportunity.
Join us as we together reimagine missions by responding to Christ’s call to love and serve those living in poverty
