Bright Hope’s approach to microfinance is to partner with the local, in-country church to not only provide funding, but also to provide training and accountability. Bright Hope’s job creation initiatives empower the extreme poor and move them towards self-sustainability using microloans, savings programs, development of local farms and businesses, and job training.
