Enabling the Last to Become First

Partner: The Center for Community Transformation (CCT)

Jesus told us that a sign of the kingdom of heaven is that the last will be first. CCT is extending that kingdom of heaven to earth. For 30+ years, they have offered great microfinance services in the form of savings, loans, and microinsurance through a cooperative that the materially poor own. The microfinance program has generated a surplus that not only returned a dividend to the materially poor, but helped fund 15+ other programs under the CCT umbrella. PEER Servants works closely with CCT to help our other Global Partners learn how they, too, can have like kingdom impact.
