How SALT helps

 

Savings groups

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

Salt & Light

This aspect of the SALT program provides Bible-based financial teaching in the USA.

Vocational schools

Our goal for SALT vocational schools is to help people in underdeveloped countries develop useful, practical skills.

Microloans

The microloan program takes funding from the United States and issues small loans for clients to start or expand small businesses.

Agri-Plus

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

Inspired, Juan then helped to get a microloan group started.
