This Christian non-profit organization emphasizes “loans to lift up the poor.” They began in 1985 and work with Christian partners in 37 countries by using microfinance concepts so that impoverished people can start or expand their own businesses and not have to deal with local loan sharks who charge exorbitantly high interest rates. Over 200,000 small businesses have been established through their outreach.
