We are a Christian microenterprise development NGO, and our mission is to provide individuals, families, and communities the opportunities to experience fullness of life in Christ through Christian microenterprise development. Our vision is to see people live Christ-centered lives with dignity, sufficiency, integrity and hope; demonstrating this through love and service in their families and communities.
As a Christian organization, we believe we are called in order to fulfill Christ’s commission to give His hope to our neighbors, to proclaim the good news of His saving grace and loving kindness to all (Luke 4:18). We recruit, train and empower our field personnel so that they can provide genuine, authentic, and effective witnessing of God’s love, knowing that whatever we do for “one of the least of these brothers and sisters,” we do it for Jesus (Matthew 25:40).We work with the rest of society to help alleviate poverty by contributing our expertise in microenterprise development. We reach out to microentrepreneurs and farmers and offer a variety of services that help them establish, sustain or grow their enterprises and farms.
It is our belief that this source of livelihood for them could be their bridge out of poverty (“tulay sa pag-unlad”).“Mahal ka ng Diyos. Ang iyong negosyo (o sakahan) ay pagpapala na nagmula sa kabutihan Niya. Ito ang iyong tulay sa pag-unlad.” -Message to Microentrepreneurs and Farmers[/box]To these microentrepreneurs and farmers, we provide microfinance and micro-agri loans.
