Since 1985, endPoverty.org in Bethesda, MD has enabled more than a hundred thousand hard-working entrepreneurs in some 50 countries to free themselves and their families out of poverty through business training and small loans. Today, the work of Enterprise Development is changing lives on five continents, targeting those who otherwise have no access to conventional credit. Using one loan at a time, these impoverished, disadvantaged clients - the vast majority of whom are women - launch small, family businesses that provide for their families and create jobs in their neighborhoods. Enterprise Development International demonstrates God's love by enabling the poor to free themselves from poverty. The mission is to (a) offer business training to low-income persons who have the potential and the desire to become self-supporting, (b) provide small loans to poor entrepreneurs who have viable business ideas but need capital, and (c) mentor participants through ongoing personal and professional encouragement. Perhaps you would like to provide prayer and financial support, or travel to meet with one of those who have benefited from Enterprise.
