GLOBE “Breaks the Chain”

GLOBE (Global Loan Opportunities for Budding Entrepreneurs) is a student-managed social business that provides microloans to entrepreneurs living in poverty around the world. We dedicate ourselves to the GLOBE mission of making changes in the world that contribute to the goal of alleviating poverty within our lifetime. This semester, our campaign of “GLOBE Breaks the Chain” carries the objective of breaking the chain of abject poverty, which traps families in a cycle of inter-generational hardship.

How do we do this? With the help of donors like you, we gain the resources to empower those living in poverty to help themselves out of poverty. Many of our borrowers are women with children, and with a loan from GLOBE they have additional income to send their kids to school and give the next generation a better chance to break out of the cycle of poverty. In many cases, poverty has been passed down for many generations, with each generation being a new link in the chain. Our borrowers tell us that GLOBE has brought hope and opportunity for their children to achieve new heights that they themselves never thought were possible. One of our GLOBE borrowers in the Philippines is the child of a rural farmer, and has a dream to attend college in the United States one day. Maybe he will become a member of GLOBE in the future!

It is our mission this semester to do our part in breaking these chains of poverty and fulfilling the dreams of our borrowers and their children. To help achieve our GLOBE mission, we are excited to announce this “GLOBE Breaks the Chain” campaign, and seek to raise $4000 over the next 30 days. With your help, we can break the chain of poverty for our borrowers’ families living in six countries, on three continents around the world. We greatly appreciate all the assistance from donors who are willing to give us the chance to help our current and future borrowers obtain economic freedom. No child deserves a life without access to quality education, and we at GLOBE, who enjoy the privilege of a great education at St. John’s University, make it our top priority to provide the means for our borrowers’ children, to enjoy that same privilege.

Please spread the word about our GLOBE mission to your friends and families, and please donate today – every penny counts in helping GLOBE break the chain of poverty.
