Today ASAP's focus is on sharing knowledge of savings groups in Latin America, (where there are currently less than 330,000 members), and in the US as well.

With first hand knowledge of the life-changing benefits of savings groups, ASAP is eager to share this simple micro-finance method to benefit people in the US and to building capacity of local organizations in Latin America to implement SG projects.
