The transformation of lives in a community should result in changes that go beyond spiritual salvation. Breaking the chains of poverty and dysfunctional social systems is the purpose of this project, by providing seed money for loans to deserving families or groups for starting small livelihood programs.
As we minister to the felt needs of the people through community transformation, it will pave the way for the gospel and churches to be planted.
The loans will be approved based on the three-fold objectives of job creation, poverty alleviation, and community transformation. This is a revolving loan program so the money will be used time and time again to help different participants.
The focus will be helping multiple families at one time. This will require them forming cooperatives or something similar. On-site visits are possible to visit a specific project or a group of projects.
Most of the projects will be in the $1,000-$3,000 range for individual families, and $3,000-$10,000 for a group or cooperative.
