Become a poverty ender today. is a Christian 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to empowering the working poor in the developing world to lift themselves out of poverty.

Rather than offering temporary aid or relief programs, we accomplish our mission by:

1) Providing small loans to poor entrepreneurs with severely limited access to capital to help them start their own small businesses.

2) Offering specialized business and vocational training to these individuals and their families.

3) Building long-term mentoring relationships and community support networks for our borrowers to help ensure their business success and personal and spiritual growth.

Since our inception in 1985, endPoverty has directly helped more than 200,000 poor entrepreneurs start their own businesses and provide for their families with dignity. We work through and are closely partnered with a network of locally-led microfinance and development institutions in twelve countries all over the world.

Whether it is coordinating an HIV/AIDS prevention campaign with our local partner in Uganda or establishing a microenterprise development program to assist poor Muslims in the Mindanao region of the Philippines, we are firmly committed to providing a holistic "hand-up" to people in need, regardless of race, gender, religion or creed.
