HOPE International is a network of microfinance institutions operating in 16 countries around the world. They work to empower men, women, and families to break the cycles of physical and spiritual poverty through the provision of biblically based business training, savings services, small loans, mentoring, and discipleship. By incorporating a strong witness for Jesus Christ and employing a variety of approaches to microfinance, HOPE is an innovator in the field of microenterprise development. In its network, HOPE includes traditional microfinance programs, microfinance plus programs (which incorporate health care, literacy training, or other community empowerment initiatives outside the realm of traditional microfinance), savings-led microfinance programs, and small and medium enterprise development programs. Their programs are effectively reaching over 400,000 entrepreneurs around the world with the love of Jesus Christ and the opportunity to start or expand a business. From inception to present, HOPE's programs boast a 96 percent repayment rate, pointing to the efficiency of HOPE's methodology. HOPE International (HOPE) is a Christian faith-based, 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization focused on alleviating physical and spiritual poverty through microenterprise development. What they do HOPE has a heart for the underserved places, where poverty and suffering are at their worst. Sometimes that means areas where the spiritual soil is tough. Other times it means working in areas where conflict is widespread or infrastructure and well-established banking systems are non-existent. HOPE's countries of operation*, though disparate in many ways, share a common lack of access to formal lending institutions for those citizens who are living in poverty. Though the challenges in such environments are numerous, HOPE's impact can make a tremendous difference. HOPE's efforts are concentrated in Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe.
