The Cherry Tree Trust is a privately funded charity (charity no. 1014) established on 31 January 2012 in Barbados. The Trust is a charitable organization that earns to support administrative costs while obtaining capital and seed money purely from private donations.
Charles Pink, one of the founders and Trustee Chairperson, is a career banker who spent seven years living in the Caribbean. Whilst there, he developed an appreciation for the Caribbean and a wider interest in being part of its further development. Charles’s idea is a simple one: Foster growth by finding a way to support small businesses.
Small and micro business interests and entrepreneurs typically find starting out or expanding a business very difficult. Often this is due to difficulty accessing start-up or other investment capital due to the inability to provide security/collateral or verifiable trading records.
The Cherry Tree Trust contributes to job creation by giving micro-businesses the opportunity to create jobs by offering qualified beneficiaries low-interest, unsecured loans, which ultimately contributes to the ongoing socio-economic development of Barbados.
