Imagine living on $3 a day or less. It’s a reality for 25 percent of the world’s population.

The materially poor have ideas for generating income that will allow their families to live with sufficiency and dignity, but they don’t have the capital to turn their dreams into reality. Micro-finance is a proven strategy for fighting poverty. PEER Servants provides micro-loans to hard-working people. Ideas become businesses and as they grow, these entrepreneurs overcome huge challenges and improve the lives of others in their communities. After Rasotha’s husband was blinded, she had to become the main provider for her family. With a micro-loan she started a farming business and now has a stable future.
