Over the last ten years Seed Fund has helped start over 120 businesses in twelve countries. They have ranged from pig farms to jewelry making; from car repair shops to wedding photography; and from coffee bars to fish farming. Seed Fund focuses mainly on developing countries, where loans of up to £5000 are appropriate to start a business and there aren’t too many legal or market barriers.
The projects not only empower people and communities through gaining resources and dignity, they also strengthen churches in challenging contexts in Eastern Europe and the Middle East.
