Around the world, more than 1 in 4 people live on less than $3.10 a day, limiting their access to necessities like food, shelter, and clean water. A similar number are disconnected from financial services—without a way to invest in a small business or a secure place to save money for their families.
In response to these challenges, HOPE International is leading with both (1) the Good News of God’s love and (2) financial tools to promote income-generating activities. Through discipleship, biblically based training, a safe place to save, and loans, we equip men and women around the world to invest in their dreams.
Join us as Marie Williams, HOPE’s senior program advisor for Urwego Bank, shares how HOPE helps families flourish.
Marie has served as the senior program advisor to Urwego Bank in Rwanda since 2015 and as technical advisor to Esperanza International, HOPE’s partner in the Dominican Republic, from 2010 to 2014. Prior to joining HOPE, Marie served seven years with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship’s MBA Ministry in Boston at the MIT Sloan School of Management and the Harvard Business School. She also led graduate student ministry at Park Street Church. Before campus ministry and seminary, Marie worked in finance for GE, Bank of America Securities, and Equest Partners. Marie holds a Masters of Divinity from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in Boston and a B.S. in finance from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. She is married to Andy Williams and they have three children, the last proudly arriving on Dominican soil.
