Many organizations provide micro-loans to the poor. Mentors International is different from these organizations not because of what we do, but how we do it. The importance of continual mentoring, training, and encouragement from our staff shows up in our results. During our 2017 fiscal year, we distributed 15,185 loans and our default rate is a low 2.3%. Over 27,000 families are impacted by Mentors International each year.
