About United Prosperity

 

United Prosperity gives you the opportunity to help poor entrepreneurs directly by lending a loan guarantee that makes a bigger loan. Our model of Guarantee-Loan-Impact is unique since you can help people directly, maximize your impact, transform communities and alleviate poverty. Each $1 you contribute acts as collateral or a guarantee with a bank. Based on the guarantee the bank makes a loan of nearly $2 to the entrepreneur though a partner Microfinance Institution (MFI). 

The entrepreneur’s progress can be tracked online. On loan repayment you get your money back and you can recycle it.  Importantly, the MFI builds a relationship and its credit history with the local banking system, encouraging other banks to lend to the MFI. This is powerful because local communities are transformed as many more entrepreneurs receive loans.

We work in regions with high levels of extreme poverty. We hope that you will join us in amplifying this positive change and lift many more communities out of poverty.
