The doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation™ is proud to be partners with a micro-lending organization, Mentors International. Providing credit to those who would otherwise not have financing opportunities or whose only lending options are with unethical and even dangerous lenders, the microcredit fund helps lift the poor from poverty while elevating communities through economic development.
Mentors International was founded in 1990 and works in developing countries to alleviate extreme poverty. This goal is accomplished by helping the hardworking poor grow small business enterprises using the principles of microcredit and self-reliance—a "hand up" not a "handout."
Mentors International provides start-up support, training, and loan capital for its partner organizations. Since the inception of the doTERRA Healing Hands Foundation’s partnership with Mentors International, 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 with loans managed by Mentors International. Mentors International extends loans to people of all creeds and faiths and strives to mentor clients with proven business principles to ensure prolonged success.
