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 25+ 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 partners most closely with the education and microfinance arms of CCT.
