Founded in 1985, End Poverty works from a Christian motivation to give people in poor communities the tools to support themselves, contribute to their communities and build self-reliance. By providing basic business training and small loans, End Poverty enables the very poor to start or expand their own micro-businesses. Through these businesses, they earn an income, provide needed goods and services, creates jobs and become community leaders.

End Poverty's model is simple but powerful.

We invest the donations receive directly into small businesses in impoverished communities in the developing world. These donations are repaid and then recycled to other community members, multiplying the donation.
