Economy

Zimbabwe's economy depends heavily on its mining and agriculture sectors. Following a contraction from 1998 to 2008, the economy recorded real growth of more than 10% per year in the period 2010-13, before falling below 3% in the period 2014-17, due to poor harvests, low diamond revenues, and decreased investment. Lower mineral prices, infrastructure and regulatory deficiencies, a poor investment climate, a large public and external debt burden, and extremely high government wage expenses impede the country’s economic performance.
Until early 2009, the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) routinely printed money to fund the budget deficit, causing hyperinflation. Adoption of a multi-currency basket in early 2009

Equipping

Jesus gave gifted men to "equip the whole church to do the work of the ministry, building up the body of Christ, until all come to a unified understanding of the faith and the knowledge of God's Son, growing to maturity, having the fullness of Christ."  Ephesians 4:11-13

Training leaders in the local church in the Word of God is the "tip of the spear" strategy of Hope Builders Ministries. These leaders are then better equipped to train the believers God has put in their charge. The whole congregation become disciple makers multiplying the advancement of the Gospel and able to help each other "walk worthy of the Gospel.
