The Bridge hands over the raised donation from crowd funding to local partners directly and fully. As the local entrepreneurs run the business and make profits, they return partial amount of the fund (50~100%). Impact donors take half of the returned donation in impact points and thankfully, the rest is donated to The Bridge.
The higher rate of return, the more stable local businesses are. This underlies a message that the local entrepreuers are on the right track to self-reliance.
The Bridge exercises incentive- and penalty-based policy to avoid local partner's moral hazards and achieves the 100% reach of the donation. Local partner's credibility level is open and transparent.
