Frequently Asked Questions
We use various types of funding, the main one of which are loans. We favor loans because they help people achieve economic independence more quickly due to the fact that loans promote personal responsibility. We reallocate the loan repayments so we can fund a larger number of organizations on an annual basis. We also provide funding in the form of donations, technical support, guarantees (mainly in India) and trade financing.
We will review all applications as soon as possible, and will let you know within two weeks whether we will process your application. If your application does not meet our criteria, we will let you know and will explain why it is not eligible for consideration.
