The mission of TCP Global is two-fold:
- To continue to mentor and support existing micro-loan administration partners of The Colombia Project.
- To provide pro bono assistance to organizations to replicate the success of The Colombia Project in marginalized communities in Colombia and around the world.
To implement the second part of our mission, TCP Global is prepared to mentor, at no cost, any affiliate group interested in establishing micro-loan programs for their country.
Using the TCP Global model, loans would be administered through organizations already working at the grassroots level in health, education, empowerment, etc. RPCVs with connections to small communities would identify effective organizations and, assisted by TCP Global, help them establish small, zero-overhead, sustainable micro-loan programs to serve communities in perpetuity. By increasing the income of their clients, TCP Global partners find they are able to better achieve their primary mission goals. In addition to providing the entrepreneurs an alternative to usurious rates charged by daily lenders, TCP Global also strengthens the grassroots partner by providing them a steady revenue stream of interest earnings.
Learn more about this model and how to replicate it for your country of service on this webinar.
