About us

A project incurred through the experiences of the organization's chief executive Tobias Schüssler and his sympathy for people living in extreme poverty in the Philippines and Indonesia. This led to the founding of the registered association "Global Micro Initiative" with headquarters in Hösbach, Germany.

Together with our local partner, we have been able to extend our help to the people in Olongapo, Philippines since fall 2014. Since July 2015, we are also active in Denpasar, Indonesia. We are offering micro loans (between 5 and 500€) and consulting to poor people that are used for starting their own small enterprise or for expanding an existing one. The goal is to empower people to independently take care of their families. Loans are only given for business purposes so that repayment is possible and allows us to reuse the capital to help people in the long term.
We are counseling and advising participants individually and offer training programs in order for them to improve their skills and enable them to celebrate their own successes.

Zusammen mit Project Life Subic arbeitete Tobias Schüssler ein Programm, für die Teilnehmerinnen der von uns geförderten Ausbildungen zur industriellen Textilverarbeiterin, aus. Ziel ist es den Teilnehmerinnen die Vorteile des Geldsparens näherzubringen und zu helfen schnell eine Stelle nach der Ausbildung zu finden. 
Die Teilnehmerinnen erhalten eine Spardose, in die sie täglich einen Teil ihres Gehaltes werfen können. Die Spardosen werden ihnen nach Abschluss des Programmes ausgehändigt. Das Gesparte können die Teilnehmerinnen beispielsweise für ihre Jobsuche nutzen. Zusätzlich erlernen sie das Prinzip des Sparen, welches dort wo sie wohnen nicht praktiziert wird.
