Powering entrepreneurs to end poverty.

Rural entrepreneurs may be vulnerable, but they are also highly innovative and motivated.

Together, we can power their path to success.

Invest with us in the power of entrepreneurship
How do we end poverty? By powering entrepreneurs.

To provide water & sanitation.
To achieve gender equality.
To adapt to climate change.
To promote health. To build resilience.
To create inclusive markets
enabling everyone to prosper on their own terms.

Every $1 you give becomes at least $10 in increased incomes for those working to improve their standard of living. We call this multiplier effect “the power of 10.” It empowers you to activate prosperity where it’s missing in the poorest places around the world.
