Start Up Loans
Empowering families in Indonesia to open their business and break the poverty cycle
Funding Start Up Loans
This project provides small start up loans for disadvantaged families in Indonesia. Proven to be a powerful tool for families to break the cycle of poverty, start up loans help transform recipients lives, their children’s futures and entire communities.
Of Indonesia’s 270 million people, 80 million live below or hover just above the poverty line. Without a financial safety net, it can be impossible to get ahead, but a small loan to start a small business can be just the head start someone needs.
Our objective in line with our philosophy to “give a hand up” not “a hand-out”, is to equip motivated individuals with a small loan to enable them to open a new business. This provides them with an effective and sustainable way of helping them leave poverty behind. The Start Up loan will empower families to grow their incomes, save money and achieve financial stability.
Your Pledge: Paying it forward to other startups
With your Purpose Pledge, other startups will have the opportunity to start their own business. Your investment is giving these people dignity and purpose. With an income and with confidence, they can reach their potential and create opportunities for the whole family.
To support families in Indonesia open their own businesses, we choose to partner with Opportunity International Australia. Their vision is for a world where everyone can achieve a life free from poverty, with dignity and purpose. Our donations to Opportunity International are also amplified through their partnership with the Australian NGO Cooperation Program. Their efforts are combined with funding from the Australian government to reach more people.
