Five Talents USA

Five Talents USA We support local churches in some of the world's lowest income countries in East Africa, South East Asia, and South America with training in adult literacy, microfinance, and business development.

Commended by resolution at the 1998 Lambeth Conference, Five Talents was created as a long-term response to the ravages of poverty that debilitate communities in developing countries. The founders, including Anglican Church leaders, talked about the plight of the poor and those dying of famine, AIDS/HIV and other diseases.

It may seem surprising, but even those living in extreme poverty can save a little each week, start a tiny business, and fulfill their God-given potential. Because most of the participants use their earnings for their children, the results are healthier families, strong and sustainable communities, and vibrant and growing churches.

Monica never held a job or worked apart from household chores or farming in her backyard. ln surveying her local town, Monica realized that there were no gas stations. Families traveled far to purchase kerosene for lamps and gasoline for vehicles or farm equipment. "They were traveling very far to get the fuel", she says.

Monica joined a Five Talents savings group and decided to start a business selling gasoline. She started with just $20 and bought a gas can, funnels, and rubber hosing. Each day she traveled far to the nearest gas station and then would buy and re-sell the fuel at a road-side stall.

The gas business did so well that Monica quickly paid back her loan and began to stock oil and basic car parts. As her business grew, Monica was able to pay school fees for her three children in high school and one in university. Now she's set up her own gas station with large tanks and fuel pumps.

"I was very quiet and suspicious of people. I was also very timid. I eventually joined a group because of my friend. She always told me that it is important to save for emergencies and to have capital for a business. At first, I didn't want to join the group, but she insisted that I try it, so I joined and began to save small amounts."

"When the war broke out in Wau, my husband was the first person to be killed leaving me with six children. I didn’t know what to do and the hope of living with my children and supporting them was gone. . . .I realized that it is through God caring for us that this training came when I was totally broken. From there I started regaining my hope and now I’m living like other women again. Participating in this trauma healing led me to join a savings group called Salam, which means peace.” -Zendia

Meet Valentina.

As a mother, Valentina wanted the best for her children. But selling used clothing “didn’t give us much profit”, she said.

When her son lost his job and her daughter became sick, Valentina knew it was time to make a change.

“After the operation on my eldest daughter, I felt compelled to start a new business because her baby needed a special milk to survive.”

Replacing her son’s income and covering the costs of medical expenses and infant formula required a major boost for Valentina’s business.
Thankfully, Valentina had received business training from Five Talents through her church and was part of a community savings group.

“Being part of the savings group makes me feel safe, I do not worry about the money, because I know that in the savings group I have an emergency fund. I also feel stronger spiritually because other pastors help me.”

Through her savings group, Valentina received encouragement and prayers. She used her group emergency fund to cover medical expenses and was also approved to take a loan for a new business concept, selling fruit juices and sodas.

“I bought blenders and a grinding machine, and with these instruments I can make soft drinks and juices that I sell at home.”

Every week, Valentina and her daughter work together to make and sell about 300 liters of fresh juice.

“The small business workshop helped me to talk with my daughter and use her talent to search our clients to their homes and businesses.”
