We believe families in poverty have the God-given talents and skills to provide for their families. What they don’t have is a lump sum of money to invest in their potential—by paying school fees, saving for the future, or investing in businesses.

In obedience to Christ’s command to love our neighbor and make disciples of all nations, HOPE International provides discipleship opportunities, training, a safe place to save, and small loans.
Through regular interactions with clients, staff members share the Gospel, facilitate Bible studies, and invite clients to experience lasting transformation through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
Because many clients have had limited access to formal education, HOPE’s network offers biblically based training, mentoring, and coaching to help clients start or expand their businesses.
Clients regularly save money to stabilize household income, provide a safety net in emergencies, start or expand businesses, or pay for household expenses such as school fees.
As they access much-needed capital, clients can launch or expand businesses by purchasing productive assets, buying supplies in bulk, improving inventory, or investing in improvements.
We have a heart for underserved areas. In some cases, we start a HOPE-managed program; in others, we partner with an existing Christ-centered ministry. Together, the HOPE network consists of microfinance institutions and savings group programs working throughout Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America.Learn more
