Every day our micro-loans are saving lives. Thousands of families have escaped extreme poverty, human trafficking, and child marriage. And we’re just getting started.
197,687 micro-loans have been given to empower families through our loan branches across Bangladesh. We are transforming whole communities through the love of Christ, and with your partnership, we’re growing our outreach even more.
Our micro-loans uniquely focus on serving families in extreme poverty, who earn less than $2 a day. Each loan recipient is paired with a loan officer and completes a two-month entrepreneur training program, helping them to learn and develop financial literacy skills and principles for starting a small business.
90% of our loans go to female entrepreneurs to generate new income for their families, empowering them to escape child marriage and human trafficking. When repaid, these micro-loan funds are issued to new families – allowing our compassion and impact to multiply and be self-sustaining.
Multiply Your Compassion
This Christmas season, you can bring the love of Christ to unreached people with an impact that doesn’t end. By giving a micro-loan, your impact continues to grow by transforming family after family, indefinitely.
You can also make your gift go twice as far! Gifts given up to $100,000 by December 31st, 2019 have the opportunity to be matched through a grant from a generous donor. We invite you to join us in making twice the impact through a special year end gift.
$1 million is needed to impact a new region of over 2 million unreached people.
