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 HOPE’s president and CEO, Peter Greer, shares how HOPE helps families flourish.
