Microfinance is a unique weapon in the fight against poverty. MoHI and CMF work to enable the poor in Nairobi, Kenya, to develop and maintain their own small businesses while receiving Christian training and support through our BigDent program, which seeks to make a "big dent” in poverty through small loans.
Microfinance is a simple concept: A would-be entrepreneur spends several hours in training in financial and spiritual topics, develops a business plan, and then applies for a loan for his new micro-business. Training and Bible study for the new entrepreneurs continues as they meet in accountability groups with trained Christian advisers to pay back their loans. As the new business owners become empowered to control their own economic futures, they also move toward an improved standard of living and transformed lives.
The BigDent website offers you the opportunity to choose a budding entrepreneur and directly sponsor a loan of any size for him or her. Entrepreneurs must make regular payments on the loan until it is repaid in full.
As loans are repaid, those funds are re-directed to new entrepreneurs or proven entrepreneurs who are expanding their businesses. In other words, your contribution does not cease working after given the first time; it is "recycled” into new loans, making a big dent in poverty.
