LIVES TRANSFORMED

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.
