Creating Wealth In Developing Countries

The Problem

At The Carpenter’s Fund (TCF), we believe that wealth creation is the key to poverty eradication. In the developing world, however, many businesses and organizations are unable to access the capital needed to grow and create wealth. This problem is particularly acute for small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs), which are too big to access microfinance capital yet too small for larger commercial bank lending.

The Opportunity

The result is an enormous demand for capital in the SME space. At TCF we see this as a tremendous opportunity for investments that provide consistent and competitive returns for investors while enabling investees to create wealth and reduce poverty in their local communities.

How We Work

The Carpenter’s Fund (TCF) has a 5-year track record of strong financial and social performance. We have returned to investors between 7% and 10% each year with zero defaults, while empowering investees to create wealth and reduce poverty in their local communities.





TCF uniquely combines a Christian-motivated and sponsored mission with a for-profit private investment model to supply senior capital to developing countries. Our projects are forecast to achieve profitability within 3-5 years, leading to a sustainable future for their communities.
