I am SO excited about this next giveaway and I hope you are too!
Did you know that 1 out of every 5 people in the world lives on less than $1.25 per day? I can’t pretend to even imagine how difficult it would be to survive, much less provide for a family on $1.25. We are so blessed here in America.
World Vision is working to fight the cycle of poverty with thier Micro Loan program. Here is how it works:
-A entrepreneur applies to World Vision for a small loan (aka a micro loan).
-WorldVision approves the borrower. Typically, they are women in developing countries who have no collateral or credit history to secure a traditional loan.
-After a borrower has been approved for a loan, their name, story, and business idea are uploaded to Micro for people like you and me to view.
-We read their story, See their business idea. Donate to help.
-Thanks to that donation the borrower can start their business and create jobs to benefit the whole community.
-Once the loan is repaid (the current repayment rate is 98.7%), the donation recycles over and over again to helping an ever-growing amount of entrepreneurs in the same country!
You can even connect one-on-one with your entrepreneur or by sign up for e-mail updates from them! Now, I don’t know about you, but I think that is just awesome!
Another exciting feature is that you can buy Micro gift cards as gifts for your friends and family and they can select their entrepreneur and follow their success! Now that is really a life changing gift that keeps on giving!
