Microfinance for talents

Almost half the world — over three billion people — live on less than $2.50 a day. This limits them from getting an education and pursuing a better life.

CodersTrust provides microfinance for students in emerging markets to upgrade their IT skills, so they can earn more money on online marketplaces such as Elance and oDesk.

Online marketplaces are transforming the world of work as millions of jobs are made available online. There are jobs for over $2 billion within IT & Programming on Elance alone.

THIS IS HOW IT WORKS
- Students are carefully chosen to avoid bad loans.
- The student receive a monthly loan backed by sponsors.
- The student undergoes a series of tests to determine their skill level.
- They are attached a mentor and proposed courses to follow.
- The students improve their skills.
- While studying they start to put their new-learned skills to use in freelance jobs that CodersTrust helps them find.
