Invest in the Kingdom. Invest in B4T.

[W]here your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Matthew 6:21

Introduction

OPEN manages a portfolio of loan funds to empower B4T entrepreneurs start or operate businesses within developing nations in the 10/40 window. We seek to be a sustainable investor that deploys capital in places too risky for traditional capital by offsetting the geopolitical risk with spiritual capital. The OPEN B4T Loan Funds are capitalized through donations, as well as returns on capital loaned. By investing in the loan funds, you are investing in businesses that make a path into the least reached areas. B4T brings together the incredible benefit of infusing a local economy with skills, infrastructure, sustainability and Gospel-centered loving relationships. The way the fund is set up provides an excellent way to put your dollars to Kingdom use over and over again.

 

Invest in a B4T Business

Through this loan program, you have the opportunity to see your capital used wisely to support real B4T entrepreneurs and their businesses—people who are on the ground, reaching the least-reached with the Gospel of Jesus. The portfolio of loans we manage is a major help to B4T entrepreneurs starting or operating businesses among least-reached people. We seek to be a sustainable investor that deploys capital in places too risky for traditional capital by offsetting the geopolitical risk with spiritual capital.

When you give, you can trust that the loan recipients will be paired with seasoned mentors and coaches, who will not only help them through the loan application process but will be there throughout the journey ahead. In this way, we help manage the loan so that, under anticipated circumstances, the loan facilitates business success and is paid back to the fund to be redeployed to another business.

Help Kingdom businesses start and thrive for the glory of God. 

Testimonials

Arnold’s Story

By investing in B4T, I’m able to “risk” some of what God’s given me in order to help Kingdom-minded businesses get off the ground or move to the next level of flourishing. I can loan a little and risk a little in order to partner with those who are using work relationships to spread Jesus’ message of transformation.

Patrick’s Story

There are few places where I can invest in funds that focused on early stage companies in emerging markets. My trust was earned when I saw how investees benefit from OPEN coaching, the larger network, and investors who care about more than just making money.
