The founders, including Anglican Church leaders, talked about the plight of the poor and those dying of famine, AIDS/HIV and other diseases. They wanted not only to assist but also to guard the dignity of the poor, many of whom survive on $1 a day, by supporting them in small businesses. Today, Five Talents is headquartered in Vienna, Virginia, outside Washington, D.C. We have offices in London and Kampala, Uganda, as well as an office in the southeast US that coordinates our Latin American program and curriculum development. We are supported by hundreds of volunteers across the US and the UK.

Before joining a savings group, Lidia walked the streets of her town selling socks from a basket. Her feet were tired, she was constantly away from her children, and her income did little to provide for her family. Now, Lidia sells food at a table outside her children's school.
"The money the group gave me helped me grow my business... with my earnings I bought the materials that my children needed for school. Thank you for helping me to have my business."
