You are helping to break the cycle of poverty

10% of the world lives on less than $1.90 a day and the cycle of poverty is strong. Some of the biggest tools to fight poverty come from the simplest solutions—training, loans, seeds, animals, and access to a marketplace. Helping someone provide for themselves provides change that will last a lifetime and effects that can be seen for generations. Women in particular feel the effects of entering a marketplace previously closed to them, providing dependable income, self-reliance, and even safety, to them and their children.
