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.
