Earth Rights Institute has advocated and promoted social and economic enterprises.  We provide the tools, resources, education and support to help our partners and communities to apply commercial strategies to maximize improvements for the local population and their environment.  We work towards creating businesses to further a social purpose in a financially sustainable way.  In today's world, modern economic models have shown to bring in inequalities in the distribution of wealth especially in regions where poverty is rampant.  Our programs, both in the past and current, have helped provide insight on how to provide income generation opportunities that meet the basic needs of people living in poverty.  We strive for communities to become self-reliant over time and set up models that can be expanded or replicated to other communities.  The microfinancing loan system, such as KIVA, is one of the  loan investments we promote as well as long term loan investments called co-profit models.
