Founded in 1979, Trickle Up’s mission is to help the lowest income people worldwide take the first steps up out of poverty by providing seed capital for their endeavors, business training, and relevant support services essential to the launch or expansion of a micro-enterprise. Trickle Up believes in people and their capacity to make a difference. We empower the world’s poorest people to develop their potential and strengthen their communities. We pursue this goal in a way that encourages innovation and leadership, maximizes resources, and promotes communication and cooperation among all Trickle Up constituencies.
