Every entrepreneur needs a coach.
People start a business because they’re excited by an opportunity to grow, do something different, hope for something better. But the path is extra challenging for our clients who live in developing economies. iDE mitigates their risk, and we’re there when they run into challenges.
iDE has been putting business to work for the poor for more than three decades, using market based solutions to change the living conditions and livelihoods of millions of people around the globe.
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.
