Seed Effect is a nonprofit, Christian microfinance organization. Our mission is to plant the seeds that overcome poverty by providing access to economic empowerment, education, and spiritual discipleship in marginalized communities.
In action, Seed Effect serves as a holistic tool to live out the Great Commission alongside the Great Commandment as we empower the poor to know and follow Jesus, plug into the local church, and overcome physical poverty. Seed Effect is a modest force that generates a significant effect. You invest with us and together we can plant the seeds that overcome poverty.

Create an inspiring movement | We believe that Seed Effect is a movement of hope, love, empowerment, and transformation. This inspires us, and those around us, to say yes, get involved and become an agent of change.
Build transformative relationships | We believe that we can affect Christ-centered transformation by building and nurturing relationships through indigenous leadership and a Gospel-centric, relational approach.
Provide stability in unstable environments | We believe that Seed Effect is called to serve by bringing stability to situations that are unstable. In other words, we work in the hard places where others won’t.
Do more with less | We believe that the way that we invest our resources matters. The places we serve are more challenging and more costly than others, but we work hard to spend available funds where we can achieve the most impact while working toward sustainability in our operations.
Promote empowerment through savings and income generating activities | We believe that microloans and savings alongside education and discipleship is a life-giving opportunity that empowers the poor to invest in their dreams. It starts with a life, impacts a family, and can transform a community.
We issue a seed loan to a struggling entrepreneur. They invest in their business. Along the way, we promote community, accountability, education, stewardship, and Truth. Now they can provide food, clean water, school fees, and healthcare for their family. With the interest earned, we can issue another seed loan to another entrepreneur. In essence, the effect continues. The effect multiplies. It’s that simple. It’s the Seed Effect.
Seed Effect is an agent of change. It starts with a life. It impacts a family. It transforms a community.
