Founded in 1979, Trickle Up empowers people living in ultrapoverty by providing a powerful combination of business skills training, coaching, seed capital grants to jump-start small businesses, savings group formation to generate financial and social capital, and access to information and services. Their focus is the "ultrapoor"--people from marginalized communities (like women or people with disabilities) who struggle to survive well below the internationally recognized $1.25/day threshold of extreme poverty. Trickle Up also excels at building the capacity of community-based organizations and regional partners to respond to the specific needs of the ultrapoor. Each year, Trickle Up helps 6,000 to 7,000 of the poorest and most vulnerable start a pathway out of extreme poverty in rural West Africa, India, and Central America.
