DiscoverHope provides an opportunity for women in poverty to create their own prosperity through microcredit, entrepreneurship and training. We exist so that women who live in developing nations on $2 a day can shape their own destinies. Our priority is wealth creation from within communities so women can radiate hope and impact future generations.
In three years, DiscoverHope has funded more than 350 loans and 900 development classes for 2000 participants who have asked for trainings related to traditional literacy, health education, business, culinary, computer, artisan skills and more. Our loan recipients have reported more than 20% in new income generation directly related to skills and knowledge obtained in our classes—which we know cycles directly back into their families and communities.
Join us in our mission of hope. Learn more about what we do.
