Vision of IPP US

Employment Creation

Our core mission is to alleviate poverty through job creation. This can be achieved by investing in small businesses and by empowering entrepreneurs who can invest their energies in building/creating new products

Poverty Reduction

Our major goal is poverty reduction through job creation. By empowering people with skills, we can provide for their needs both within their families and the overall community to grow local economies and bring prosperity

Measurable Change

We endeavor to mentor and support enterprises that are environment, human and animal friendly. Businesses that have positive impact on the economy by providing jobs to the poor and by attempting to reduce imports

Our Flagship Project

New Venture Contest (NVC)

There are many small business ideas that people aspire for but cannot pursue due to lack of resources, guidance, and encouragement.  In 2022, the principals of IPP-US decided to launch a competition of business ideas aimed for aspiring entrepreneurs to pursue their dreams and make them a reality.  The winning projects are not only financed through no-interest loans, but the winning teams are guided by subject-matter experts and business professionals to make them successful.  It ultimately serves to fulfill the mission for which IPP-US was formed.  

How it Works?
Interest-free Financing

Grassroots microfinancing organizations offer training, support, and a reliable method of saving, borrowing, and growing a business. Individuals begin saving. Farmers help each other prepare their farms.

Group Support

Support enterprises, which are environment, human and animal friendly. Small groups train together and support each other in planning their income. Aim is improvement of family nutrition, health, and schooling levels.


Efforts are to help job creation and poverty reduction by supporting entrepreneurial business efforts that can be assessed as impactful for boosting the economy.


People who have struggled have transformed themselves into donors and leaders, helping their neighbors, solving community issues.


IPP’s partners strive to get people on the ladder to climb out of extreme poverty. IPP’s role is to widen the rungs: we get as many people as possible on the ladder.
