Stories of Success

All of our entrepreneurs have an important story to tell. They all start the same: mentoring and training from our Mentors International team, then they are supported with a micro-loan.

Through our mentoring programs, these entrepreneurs learn accountability and other skills that improve their businesses and in turn their lives. They become successful entrepreneurs, but most important they become heroes. Heroes to their family and to themselves, they have beaten the odds and lifted themselves out of the poverty that engulfs so many in developing countries. We would like to share a few stories of some of the individuals that we have been able to serve through self-reliance.
