The mission of Tricord Microfinance is to provide microcredit (small loans) to the poor in developing nations, empowering them to move out of poverty and into productivity and prosperity.
Our operational model shall follow the proven best-business practices of the microfinance industry, as well as endeavoring to “piggy-back” on the existing infrastructure of local church networks. This partnership approach will allow us to more effectively impact families and entire communities, while at the same time help strengthen local churches. The “business-as-mission” philosophy of Tricord is to function in a manner that not only preserves donor capital and achieves financial sustainability, but does so without compromising our commitment to physical, spiritual, and social transformation.
