Buyers agent lends a helping hand in Indonesia

Sydney-based property buyer managing director Rich Harvey travelled to Manado in North Sulawesi, East Indonesia, for 10 days in November with a group of people to support a Christian micro enterprise development organisation called Bridge of Hope.

Bridge of Hope provides small loans of between $100 and $200 to assist in growing and developing small businesses so that families can improve their lives and escape the poverty cycle.

Mr Harvey provided leadership training to the Bridge of Hope staff on time management, communication and effective listening skills and also ran a staff retreat to boost team morale and encourage the workers.

“Most businesses are food and product based with little diversification,” Mr Harvey said.

“But the small loan makes such a difference and they are able to receive training and triple or quadruple their production so they can make more profit to expand their business capital,” he said.

This in turn enables them to be more self reliant and provide more for their extended families.”
