Businesses Empowering Businesses
Our members meet weekly with their Seed Effect Savings & Loan group to study God’s word, pool their savings, and lend to each other. In a region where access to financial tools and resources is limited, these small loans provide the capital needed to launch small businesses or expand existing businesses in the refugee settlements and neighboring villages in northern Uganda
Through Businesses Empowering Businesses, you have a unique opportunity to leverage your business to empower other small business owners in Uganda to access these critical tools, provide hope and opportunity, and support our members in their entrepreneurial endeavors.
Here are a few ways that our “Businesses Empowering Businesses” partners are uniquely supporting Seed Effect:
“We have a passion to serve our clients with excellence and also to add a human element to the home loan process. Seed Effect has been a trusted partner for giving a hand-up to the South Sudanese refugees and Ugandans who want to improve their financial and spiritual lives.”
– Marc McClendon and Mark Herrell
Marc and Mark donate a percentage of every mortgage loan underwritten to Seed Effect to empower other small business owners and provide a customized Seed Effect donation card for each client at closing.
“Since hearing about Seed Effect through the giving organization Ambassadors Club nearly 10 years ago, I have been drawn to support the organization’s wonderful work.
My finance background helped Seed Effect’s tactical mission make sense to me, and the entrepreneurial spirit and culture of love Seed Effect promotes spoke to my heart.”
– Jeff Richards
Jeff donates a percentage of Mooala’s quarterly sales to Seed Effect to empower entrepreneurs in northern Uganda.

“When a client books a wedding session with me a portion of the proceeds will go to one of four ministries that are near and dear to my heart. After being a missionary and living overseas for a year, I have seen how non-profits can be run really well or really terribly and so I have learned to do my research on which I’m supporting. Seed Effect is the only ministry included that I have not personally been over and met the people/seen the work first hand, but I have seen the benefits through the conversations I have had with staff and supporters that have. And that speaks volumes to the effectiveness, transparency, and impact of the ministry.

“As Seed Effect has long empowered micro businesses, often run by women, we could think of no better fit than to encourage Bethany to use her earnings to empower someone else to start their small business.” – Doug Bender, Bethany’s father
Bethany is a 10 year old entrepreneur that breeds sheep. She donates a portion of her giving fund to empower other small business owners to promote hope and opportunity for South Sudanese refugees and Ugandans. Read Bethany’s story here.
Your business can empower the businesses of our South Sudanese and Ugandan members to grow, thrive, and in so doing provide for their families and the community at large.
