Addressing Extreme Poverty

By directly addressing the problem of extreme poverty, the Honor 1000 Micro-finance Program in the Philippines, directly decreases the attraction to high risk practices of migration to find work and being tricked into the sex trade.

37 new women have joined the project over the past quarter

2,271 women are currently part of the Honor 1000 Micro-finance project.

251 women, over the past 12 months, are now operating successful small businesses, fully repaid their loans and are now poverty free. 

Maricel is one of the young women who joined Honor 1000’s Micro-finance Program recently. Along with 30% of the Philippine population, she was poor and had a bleak futureShe was determined to help her husband in building a better future. She started from owning a few livestock to securing a place in their local market. Her retail items grew to include ready to wear accessories and as her business has grown, she now also sells vegetables and spices. Her livestock has grown and she is able to offer more variety and products to her customers.

With her profit, she is able to financially support her nieces and nephews in their education. Maricel has suffered a miscarriage recently but she is saving and preparing a safe home for when she has her own children. We are proud of Maricel for taking charge of her life and her future. We know, with the support this amazing project offers, she will flourish into a young entrepreneur, become poverty free and have a bright future. 

Thank you to those who have believed in and invested into this program. It continues to change lives and provide women and their families with sustainable solutions to poverty.
