About Team 1 - Microfinance

Team Microfinance Walkers: Todd and Leslie Engelsen, Narciso Tan

Team Microfinance is a team of PEER Servants volunteers and friends who want materially poor families to live with sufficiency and dignity. Team members are dedicated to creating effective means for these families to be able to access affordable loan capital and grow small businesses that can support families and create jobs. PEER Servants has microfinance partners in Guatemala, India, Moldova, Peru, the Philippines, South Sudan, Sri Lanka, Uganda, and Zambia. They serve anywhere from hundreds to tens of thousands of aspiring micro-entrepreneurs who are transforming their own families, churches, and communities.

We would like to raise $25,000+ in loan capital through PEER Servants' 2023 Walk for Global Empowerment to support these hardworking moms and dads and their small business growth. If we are able to reach the $25,000 goal, a generous donor will provide a $5,000 match, bringing our total to $30,000+. In addition, for each additional $10,000 that we raise, the match will grow by $5,000. The overall walk goal is $200,000. 100% of what you give will go through PEER Servants as loan capital to PEER Servants' microfinance partners. PEER Servants will send you a tax receipt.

If you would like to make a donation, simply click "Donate Now" and include the name of the walker you are supporting (if any) in the "Name of Walker" field. If you prefer to give by check, please make it out to PEER Servants and give it to the walker you are supporting or send it to PEER Servants, PO Box 258, Woburn, MA 01801 and note the name of the walker you are supporting. If your employer offers a matching gift program, please submit your donation to stretch the impact your generosity is having.

We would love for you to join our team in walking to raise funds! Please click here to register for the Walk and select Team 1 - Microfinance and your personal fundraising commitment level. You can walk and crowdfund through July 31, 2023 by joining a PEER-hosted Walk, a Neighborhood Walk, or walking with us right where you are.

Thank you so much for your support!
