WHAT IS A HOPE LOAN?
A hope loan is a donation that helps someone in need buy something useful to start their very own business—like a cow, fishing net or sewing machine.
WHO WE STRIVE TO HELP
That business empowers families living in extreme poverty (less than $2 USD per day) to bring themselves up from hardship.
Ending Poverty Starts Here
Your one-time donation continues to transform lives, indefinitely.
