Thriive builds shared prosperity in the developing world by helping small businesses to create jobs and donate basic necessities to their communities.
Thriive provides pay-it-forward financing for production equipment to ambitious small business entrepreneurs, helping to expand their businesses and create desperately needed new jobs. Through this ThriiveCapital system, loans are not repaid in cash, but instead “paid forward” with donations of basic necessities and job training to vulnerable community members.
The majority of entrepreneurs are so inspired by the impact their donations have on others that they continue giving, transforming themselves from someone in need to someone whose donations fortify their communities. In this way, business growth becomes tied to becoming socially responsible–turning small business into a sustainable force for good! By spreading greater prosperity and employment, Thriive contributes to alleviating poverty and making vulnerable communities more resilient and self-sufficient.
