Angel Card Project


Local Heroes Angel Cards are available only at Member Churches, Schools & Charities

 

After activating your Membership Card, simply register on-line at www.localheros.net. From every transaction a portion of the discount you receive from participating Merchants (minimum requirement of 25%) is instantly directed to your Parish’s bank account each business day and you receive a tax receipt for all donations once each month.  When registering your Membership Card please spend a few minutes creating your personal profile and select your Preferences.  This will allow us to consistently increase the value you receive with Membership and assist in enrolling a diversified mix of Merchant Partners.  Special offers/incentives will be tailored specifically to your selected preferences.  You will ONLY be contacted through text and email alert ONLY when a personal preference in your profile is matched.

 

As soon as you are registered each Angel Cardholder will receive a "Daily Devotional" message Monday thru Saturday from your Pastor, (an email alert and/or text to your cellular phone). The link opens the Angel Card website where you can view the latest information and can visit the online Directory, updated daily with new Merchants that have joined the Program.

The Microcredit Industry has approximately 45 billion dollars in microloans distributed worldwide.  Almost without exception these loans are made to borrowers in cash and therefore have presented MFI's with a host of administrative, logistical and security issues, not to mention no ability for MFIs to monitor the use of funds. Often the funds are diverted and used for illicit activities or become the target of theft. Local Heroes can now offer the Microcredit Industry a variety of electronic, (card-based) solutions to distribute and track funds between Microfinance Institutions and their Borrowers.   Once approved, loaned funds can be instantly disbursed onto to a personalized stored value card issued to each Borrower, with PIN level security.  Each time a card is swiped in one of Local Heroes wireless terminals (battery powered), the transaction details are captured and in turn can be monitored to insure the Borrower is spending the funds as outlined by his or her Loan Agreement.  Cards can be used in our online portal to purchase a variety of wholesale goods that can be tailored to the various regions and resold based on the specific needs of the communities and villages where the Microloans are distributed.
