This group is comprised of the members of a small group (life-group) from Life-Pointe Church in Homestead, Florida. Each semester (about 16 weeks) we engage ourselves in a mission to advance the gospel of Jesus Christ, and funding micro loans is our chosen mission!
You don't have to be a member of this life-group to join, as our goal is to raise money to help God's children around the world, and although we'd love to see in our study group this is not a requirement to join this fund raising group.
So far we have identified most of the tasks we need to accomplish to do this, assigned them to various members and are now in the process fleshing out the details to get this going. We have decided to host a charity dinner where we will cook food from the various countries we are supporting, along with a lecture on micro-finance loans and it's impact on people who would otherwise have no place to go to raise above the cycle of poverty and hunger that many have accepted as a way of life.
Every dollar invested in Opportunity becomes $6 invested in microenterprises over the course of 5 years.
As loans are repaid, the money is lent to new entrepreneurs again and again, multiplying the impact of each dollar over time. Check out our estimate of your group's collective impact as your donations are recycled and reinvested!
