Lending Promise 479 Tovar Drive
San Jose, CA 95123
Lending Promise provides small loans known as microcredit to mothers in some of the world’s poorest villages, women who are too poor to qualify for a bank loan.
With the loans, they can buy resources to start businesses – whether it's animals for a farm, seeds for crops, fabric for handicrafts to training to become a tourist guide. We also provide literacy training and small business counseling to ensure that they have the tools they need to be successful.
The women’s newfound self-sufficiency allows them to carve out a better life for themselves and much better futures for their children. They invest in education, nutrition and other improvements for their families, sparking sweeping changes in their villages -- higher literacy rates, better nutrition, fewer deaths and stronger economies.
