All it takes is one day for history to happen.

In 1 day, 34 New Loan Applications were filled out by borrowers in the Philippines!

This is a first in GLOBE History!

GLOBE (Global Loan Opportunities for Budding Entrepreneurs) is a student-managed microloan program here at St. John’s University, providing loans sourced entirely through donations to entrepreneurs in the developing world. GLOBE currently operates with borrowers in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Kenya, Nigeria, Nicaragua, Vietnam and with YOUR help, we can expand into our 6th country, where new and hopeful borrowers await us in the Philippines! We are so excited for this new opportunity and we can’t wait to share it with you.

Observing the impacts that the program has had, we are eager to help those in poverty in the Philippines.Entering this new frontier provides many exciting opportunities for women like Irene Vencer who is asking for a loan to open her sari-sari store, to help uplift a community of women in Iloilo Province whose livelihoods were destroyed by the Typhoon Yolanda just two years ago. GLOBE offers small loans that have a big impact in the lives of our borrowers, providing them with the stepping-stones needed to take their first step out of poverty. We earnestly want to make a difference for women like Irene, but we need the funds to do so. Help us raise capital to make a strong impact. Lend a hand! In joining hands with us, you contribute to making all the difference in the life of someone living in extreme poverty

GLOBE is asking you to join us as we embark on our 2nd campaign #GLOBEgoesfor6. Help us reach our goal of $3400 in honor of our 34 New Loan Applications in the Philippines! Every gift matters, every dollar goes a long way!

With YOUR help, we can move into our 6th country!

With YOUR support, we are one step closer to eradicating poverty.

With YOUR donations, we can continue touching the lives of our borrowers.

We Need YOU to make History!

Please join us as #GLOBEgoesfor6!

Thank You !

Thank You so much to everyone who helped us get to our goal of $3400 !
