Based in Lancaster, PA, HOPE International (HOPE) is a Christian faith-based, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization investing in the dreams of families in the world's underserved communities as we proclaim and live the Gospel. Why Christ-centered financial services? We believe families in poverty have the God-given talents and skills to provide for their families. What they don’t have is a lump sum of money to invest in their potential—by paying school fees, saving for the future, or investing in businesses. 2 billion people around the world do not have access to financial services. 91 percent of adults in high-income countries have an account compared to just 28 percent in low-income countries. We desire to see men and women around the world find their soul’s satisfaction in Christ and become dignified, hope-filled providers in their families and communities. In obedience to Christ’s command to love our neighbor and make disciples of all nations, HOPE International provides discipleship opportunities, training, a safe place to save, and small loans. We offer these services through two models:
1. Savings and credit associations (SCAs) are groups of individuals who save their money together in partnership with the local church. As they build a secure sum of money, members often take out loans from their group to pay for household expenses or invest in businesses.
2. Microfinance institutions (MFIs) are banks designed to serve entrepreneurs in poverty by providing small loans, a safe place to save, and other financial services to help men and women invest in their businesses and provide for their families. We have a heart for underserved areas. In some cases, we start a HOPE-managed program; in others, we partner with an existing Christ-centered ministry. Together, the HOPE network consists of microfinance institutions and savings and credit associations working throughout Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America.
Who we are
We are a group of Christ-followers motivated by the Great Commission and the Greatest Commandment to love God, love our neighbor, and make disciples of all nations.
We proclaim and live the Gospel, affirming that we all need daily bread and the Bread of Life. In fighting global poverty, we are confronting one of the greatest challenges of our day in service to an even greater God.
