SALT Microfinance Solutions

SALT is an acronym for Shared Accountability, Lending, and Teaching. This CAM program reaches out to impoverished people through microloans, savings groups, and agricultural programs. A key component of the program is teaching, both in business principles and Biblical truths. Our goal is to walk alongside clients, helping them use the resources God has placed in their care and teaching them the importance of following Jesus in everyday life.

Your contributions are making a difference!

The Microloan program uses funding from donors to issue small loans to start or expand businesses.

Savings Groups simply provide structure and teaching that helps a community work together to save money so clients can take out small loans.

The Agri-Plus approach helps farmers identify their resources and implement sustainable farming practices.
