The Loan Challenge

As you may have noticed, things have been pretty quiet on this blog lately. That's because we've been busy working hard on two big projects. The first project is our summer speaking tour, where we're travelling around the U.S. giving talks about poverty, microlending, and how PHPG is using microlending to eradicate poverty in Nicaragua. On this tour, we are asking groups to sponsor loans to help us reach the goal of 100 loans funded by October 17 - World Poverty Day. The other big thing we're working on is an expansion of our microlending programs to a new region of Nicaragua, called Matagalpa. We look forward to sharing our progress with you sometime in Fall.

During our summer speaking tour, we will be blogging exclusively on our summer tour website. You can follow our progress and find out when we'll be coming to your area at:

As always, thank you so much for your support. If you think of a group that might be interested in hearing about our work or sponsoring a loan, please send me an email at

Thanks so much!
