Economic Development

In addition to the Community Development in the zone 3 garbage dump community, For the Love of Missions is engaging in Economic Development in Guatemala. Economic Development can be explained as an enterprise solution.

The Rethink Missions Navigator’s Guide explains enterprise solution as “a long-term development approach to helping the world’s materially poor through business enterprise or entrepreneurial empowerment. It emphasizes the innovation spirit in each human being to be creative problem-solvers, blessing local communities with jobs as well as goods and services.”

Ultimately God is a creative God who created humans in His image, which makes humans inherently creative. There are many obstacles to engaging this creativity in the developing world, a major one is in the area of the economy. For the Love of Missions is focusing on this area as we engage Guatemalan entrepreneurs through business loans and investment of relationship and capital. More on this in the coming days…
