Going from an idea to a profit takes a lot of steps
It’s not as simple as identifying what consumers want and nothing more–and a lack of funds is often the one barrier between people in vulnerable communities having a great idea and being able to execute on it.
Profiting on a product first requires figuring out how to develop it even in adverse situations and then how to get it onto the market—and for a fair price.
Even in the poorest places around the world, hardworking people struggle to improve the conditions of their families. While they are producing a good or product to sell, people may lack the knowledge or opportunity necessary to form a market or delivery system to benefit or grow their profit.
At World Hope, though, we are believers in innovation—and that in working alongside vulnerable communities, we can help them develop their ideas into a profit and lift themselves out of poverty.

We are always working closely with vulnerable populations to find innovative ways to create opportunities so that they can expand their incomes and improve their lives.
