Invest in our work
Like most of the world's poor, artisans and small farmers are often denied access to credit. Your interest-bearing investment in the SERRV International Loan Fund provides our large network of artisans and cooperatives with working capital to develop and sell their products. It allows us to pay them fairly and in advance for their handmade products (months before we can ship and sell these products in the U.S.), ensuring they have funds to buy raw materials and to earn income while they work.
We believe this kind of micro-financing is a powerful tool to fight poverty, and your participation in our Loan Fund directly enables a just, beneficial and sustainable approach to economic development for those with few opportunities.
The Serrv International Loan Fund is currently available for participation in the following states: Alaska, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Rhode Island, Texas, Utah, Washington, Washington DC, Wisconsin For more information and a prospectus on our Loan Fund, please contact Catherine Dowdell by email.
Operated by Serrv International Inc., a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, the Serrv International Loan Fund was established in 2002 to support the organization's charitable mission and fair trade principles.
