It’s easy for people to feel trapped in an endless cycle of poverty. This is especially true for families who live in struggling third world economies. With little access to education, training, or financial resources, this cycle of poverty can last for generations. It doesn’t have to be like this anymore.

“Mentors International believed in me. They supported me and provided the resources to grow my business. My children are in school and I have been able to make improvements to our home. Thank you Mentors International for bringing hope to the hopeless.”
How your donation helps families create a new legacy and a path to greater self-reliance.
The families we work with have little to no education. Our business and personal development training programs are designed to help these impoverished entrepreneurs successfully start and improve their businesses.
Apply For a Loan
These developing entrepreneurs then apply for a micro-loan which they will use to invest in their businesses. With our perpetual loan model, your donations impact becomes greater.
Grow Their Business
As these entrepreneurs grow in self-reliance they become able to:
- Afford to feed their families nutritional meals
- Send their children to school
- Build Better Homes
- Save For the Future
At Mentors International, we know that people aren’t looking for a handout. They want to become more self-reliant. They just need a hand up to get them started on their journey.
With an average loan size of about $300, they will be well on their way.
We know it’s easy to feel like there is nothing you can do help these families living in extreme poverty.
Every donation, no matter the size will help end the cycle of poverty and pave the way to greater self-reliance.
