An Invitation: CPC Mission’s Partner Fund Raiser Event!
Micro Business Mentors is a Pay-It-Forward Concept... This ministry (a CPC Mission’s Partner) focuses on providing small business loans to Christian entrepreneurs in Uganda and the Philippines and was started by CPC’s very own, John Jensen. The average loan is generally between $300 - $500, lasts between 6 to 9 months with over 85% of initial loans being repaid and re-invested in additional small loans. MBM funds micro businesses ranging from bakeries, barber shops, chicken co-ops, and pig breeding, to fish and produce stalls, sari-sari stores, street food, and water delivery.
Our annual fund raiser is set for September 7th from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm featuring dinner and both a SILENT and LIVE auction. This year’s event is at the Alamo Women’s Club (1401 Danville Blvd. Alamo CA.
