Trickle Up

Since 1979, Trickle Up has helped 250,000 women gain the skills and confidence to achieve greater economic self-sufficiency. When women succeed, so can their children and families.

Trickle Up implements a program called Graduation to help people take a series of steps on the path toward greater economic self-sufficiency. In their program, women are carefully selected and form savings groups of other women in their village. They receive a small seed capital grant to start business activities. They learn to save, access credit, build skills and support one another as peers. Each woman also receives one-on-one coaching – important for building confidence and developing livelihood plans for the future.

The Trickle Up Gift of Compassion gives microgrants, as opposed to microloans, to provide Guatemalan women independence and facilitate long-term, sustainable livelihoods.
