Who we are
We are a group of Christ followers motivated by the Great Commission and the Greatest Commandment to love God, love our neighbor, and make disciples of all nations.

We proclaim and live the Gospel, affirming that we all need daily bread and the Bread of Life. In fighting global poverty, we are confronting one of the greatest challenges of our day in service to an even greater God.

Read about HOPE's mission, identity, and culture through our guiding statements and principles.Why Christ-centered financial services?
We believe families in poverty have the God-given talents and skills to provide for their families. What they don’t have is a lump sum of money to invest in their potential—by paying school fees, saving for the future, or investing in businesses.

An estimated 97 million people were pushed into extreme poverty in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Christ at the center
We desire to see men and women around the world find their soul’s satisfaction in Christ and become dignified, hope-filled providers in their families and communities.

A holistic approach
In obedience to Christ’s command to love our neighbor and make disciples of all nations, HOPE International provides discipleship opportunities, training, a safe place to save, and loans.

Cross icon
Through regular interactions with the men and women we serve, staff members share the Gospel, facilitate Bible studies, and invite them to experience lasting transformation through a relationship with Jesus Christ.

Training icon
Because many living in poverty have had limited access to formal education, the HOPE network offers biblically based training, mentoring, and coaching to help people start or expand their businesses.

Savings icon
Those we serve regularly save money to stabilize household income, provide a safety net in emergencies, start or expand businesses, or pay for household expenses such as school fees.

Loan icon
As they access much-needed capital, men and women can launch or expand businesses by purchasing productive assets, buying supplies in bulk, improving inventory, or investing in improvements.

Savings group programs
Savings group programs are groups of individuals who save their money together in partnership with the local church. As they build a secure sum of money, members often take out loans from their group to pay for household expenses or invest in businesses.

Microfinance institutions
Microfinance institutions are banks designed to serve entrepreneurs in poverty by providing loans, a safe place to save, and other financial services to help men and women invest in their businesses and provide for their families.

Small-and-medium-enterprise (SME) lending
SMEs are critical for national economic progress, but in countries with lower per capita incomes, these businesses are noticeably missing. For entrepreneurs ready to scale, larger loans and additional training empower them to create jobs and minister to their communities.

Where we serve
We have a heart for underserved areas. In some cases, we start a HOPE-managed program; in others, we partner with an existing Christ-centered ministry. Together, the HOPE network serves throughout Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America.
