Impoverished People Discover Ways to Provide

Impoverished People

Impoverished people who have long struggled to support themselves and their families are discovering creative ways to provide an income. At SALT* savings group meetings, members learn Bible-based business principles and work together to collectively save money. As the savings accumulate, the group decides who should receive a loan and what the terms should be. The loan recipient is then able to start or expand a small business to help provide for themselves. Each group member eventually has a turn to receive a small loan.

In addition to business teaching, SALT meetings provide an open door to teach God’s Word. Many SALT group members are learning about Jesus for the first time.

*SALT is an acronym for Shared Accountability, Lending, and Teaching.
