The mission of Empowered Poor is to empower 100,000 underprivileged & marginalized in South Asia through micro-lending, education, and skill training thus breaking the cycle of poverty and building strong and stable communities.



Our values are based on our Judeo-Christian belief to respond to the poor according to Proverbs 31:9 to “plead the cause of the poor and needy” both in love and service.

We are dedicated to practice indisputable integrity and accountability without bias and are sensitive to cultural realities. We are stewards of the resources given us by donors and understand that they are not our own. We regard them as a trust from God on behalf of the poor.



Transformation of Communities. Poverty has both local and global causes. Empowered Poor works with individuals, families, and communities by providing micro-lending, education, and training to individuals and families-enabling them to achieve self-reliance and build sustainable legacies. We are also dedicated to working with and caring for the most vulnerable in society, the children.
