Billions of people do not have ready access to traditional financial products such as bank accounts or collateral based loans.  Microfinance organizations step into this gap and provide small loans to entrepreneurs in third-world countries, allowing them the opportunity to raise themselves out of poverty.
GMF uses the principle of microfinance to empower native ministers in third-world countries. Where for-profit microfinance organizations must guard their profitability and using strong collection activities, Christian microfinance organizations like GMF can leverage Christian principles in lending and cover risk with the umbrella of trust in God’s provision for the giver, the lender, and the borrower.
