A LITTLE ABOUT US

Micro-Loans

Through the use of small business loans, not handouts, we are able to help provide the world’s poorest people with the tools, training, capital, and sweat equity to achieve local economic stability and the dignity that stems from solving their own problems.

Training

World Ventures takes potential borrowers through a unique business course designed to work with each individual’s God-given talents and tools.

Accountability

All loans are under local oversight, and upon repayment, they are reinvested again based upon each community’s needs.  Loan amounts can vary from as little as $100 to several thousand dollars based upon each business plan and in conjunction with the annual medium income of that country.

Educating

Educating a small group of borrowers can change the attitudes and actions of an entire village. This training provides a foundation for business ethics, budgeting, saving, and basic finance. Those who are trained and running their own business are also able to come alongside others to help in the healthy growth of their community and local ministries.

2017 INITIATIVES

Providing life-changing loan opportunities requires capital.  Your generous donation of any size will go a long way toward helping some of the world’s poorest people rise above the grips of poverty.

Kenya

Kenya is a country marked by poverty and civil unrest, providing little financial and educational opportunities for entrepreneurs with dreams of a better life for themselves and their families.  Partner with us in Kenya in 2017 as we empower, equip, and transform lives through discipleship and business training.

Haiti

Haiti has an alarmingly high unemployment rate and over 2.5 million Haitians live in extreme poverty.  Join our new initiative in Haiti to provide Biblically-sound business training and affordable loans to small business owners striving for a brighter future.

Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso is one of the poorest countries in the world, with an average income of $400 per year and more than 45 percent of the population living on less than a dollar a day.  Partner with us this year in Burkina Faso as we provide small business owners with the spiritual and financial training they need to achieve business success and transform their communities.

YOU CAN HELP

Support a Venture

Your gift is the gift that truly does keep on giving because as each loan is re-paid, the money is reinvested towards the next need, and continues the process over again.

Lend Your Expertise

World Ventures offers you the opportunity to serve and share your gifts by providing a “helping hand up”, not a “hand out”!

Become a Business Trainer

Through World Ventures and with local oversight, borrowers receive the basic understanding of how to manage their businesses and personal finances.

Become a Prayer Partner

We covet your faithful prayers for our wisdom as leaders and for the people involved in ventures worldwide.

But God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.
Psalm 9:18
The good news is that poverty can be defeated, and you can join the battle knowing that good actions can prevail where good intentions fail.
Eric Thurman, A Billion Bootstraps
Speak up and judge fairly; defend the rights of the poor and needy.
Proverbs 31:9
The pathway to economic freedom – real prosperity for millions living in poverty – is through values-based private investment grounded in the time-tested principles of free enterprise.
John Coors, quoted by Robert D. Lupton, Charity Detox

PROJECTS

Our Mission: Our heart’s desire is to provide capital, business training, encouragement, and refreshment to those who would otherwise have no opportunity or ability to start their own viable businesses.  In turn, these people  will be freed from the grips of poverty and will be able to serve others in their communities, while being self-sustaining, providing for their own families, communities, churches, and others, all in the hope of bringing God glory!

Our Vision: With over 4 billion people living on less than $4 per day, it is our passion, through the provision of micro loans, that the poorest throughout the world have the opportunity to run their own businesses and live a life with dignity and purpose, free from poverty, becoming self-sustaining, and sharing the loving message of the gospel not only with their families, but also with their communities.
