Microfinance is the practice of making financial services available to the poorest people in the world earning about $ 1 per day who do not have access to typical banking services.
By helping the active poor who make $1.25 per day and have the desire to help themselves, small amounts of money can go a long way in making them self-sufficient.
When jobs are created people survive on their own as their self-esteem and outlook on life improve dramatically. The income generated from their new businesses allows once poor families to begin to fulfill basic needs transforming one life at a time as each person escapes the tragedies of poverty.
In the next 10 minutes, 50 people will die from hunger. Our Mission is to Make an Impact by Investing and Transforming the Life of An Entrepreneur

Supporting Citrus Farmers and Greening the Environment
Who are they?
ASA Initiative is an MFI that provides loans for green energy and agriculture. They give green loans to entrepreneurs to sell clean energy cook stoves that run on waste materials produced by communities. Agricultural loans support citrus farmers in Ghana to expand their farms, hire labor, transport goods to the market, and ultimately increase their household income.
You’ll love them if…you think clean households and productive farmers are the way to a healthy and happy community.
