From finding investors to interest rates and loans, the struggles of starting a new business are monumental. However, when an already difficult mission is combined with economical poverty, astronomical interest rates, and unethical or dangerous lenders, the task can feel insurmountable.
With micro-credit lending programs, the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation seeks to assist hardworking individuals in developing countries by providing ethical, fair lending practices and low interest rates. This hand-up assistance offers opportunities for individuals and communities with creative, unique business plans that would otherwise be either obsolete or nearly impossible. Along with these loans, business education and training are provided to ensure the success of these intelligent but struggling entrepreneurs.
Since this initiative was adopted, millions of individuals in developing countries have broken the cycle of poverty and learned to make a difference in their communities through the formation of small businesses. The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation is proud to support and protect entrepreneurs and small businesses across the globe.
