Volunteer Located just outside Baltimore, our warehouse is filled to the brim with handcrafted items. Each year, we depend on hundreds of volunteers to help us ship thousands of items to our customers. Just let us know when you'd like to volunteer. Lunch is on us!
Invest with SERRV Your loan to SERRV International will grow income for marginalized artisans (and interest for you).
Micro-financing is a powerful tool to fight poverty, and your participation in our Loan Fund will directly impact fair and sustainable economic development for those with few opportunities.
Your personal or group investment in SERRV will go a long way. It allows us to continue paying artisans and farmers many months before we receive their handmade products - ensuring they'll have the needed capital to buy raw materials and earn fair wages while they work.
At the same time, you'll receive cash payments for interest accruing on your investment.
Loan options include:
- 1 to 5 year terms
- Generous fixed interest rates
- Interest accrual on loans as low as $2,500
