ABC demonstrates God’s love by enabling and empowering the poor to escape from the chronic cycle of poverty in which they live. Through the provision of small loans, basic business training, encouragement and access to other financial services, people living in poverty are helped to start or expand their own businesses (micro-enterprises). By their own efforts, the poor are able to support their families, emerge from the cycle of poverty and contribute in many positive ways to the long-term development of their communities
