How it Works

We have one simple focus: to bring an end to extreme poverty through the power of small business.

How? By offering small businesses a personalized, cause-marketing program that helps them grow their business and also directly funds microloans for microentrepreneurs working their way out of poverty around the world. Join the small business cause-marketing program today!

Small businesses are the backbone of the US economy. In fact, small businesses are the backbone of every economy. The microloans funded through the Erase Poverty Microloan Portfolio are distributed by our pre-screened, partner organizations. They are used to assist in the creation and growth of small businesses in impoverished areas globally as well as in the USA. These MicroBusinesses will lift families out of poverty, create local jobs, and build a sustainable economy in the surrounding community.

Our focus areas include: USA (San Diego, Chicago, Dallas, New York), Mexico, Peru, Kenya, Rwanda, Malawi, Ghana, Tanzania, Uganda, Philippines, and Cambodia.

As an individual, you can join the Erase Poverty movement and support the cause by pledging to help erase poverty, spreading the word to friends through Twitter and Facebook, and shopping at member small businesses. Erase Poverty makes it easy for you to find local businesses that care through our online directory of member businesses. You are also able to contribute to fund microloans.
