Why Give when you can Lend?

LendwithCare Ambassador in Northern Ireland Gavin Walker introduces LendwithCare

LendwithCare brings together entrepreneurs in developing countries with people with the power to help them.

I hope you might ask your CSR Team to consider supporting LendWithCare and investing some of their hard-earned fundraising money into this proven, innovative microfinancing programme.

Run by Care International – one of the world’s leading aid and development organisations – LendwithCare is a revolutionary way for your business to help people in the developing world to transform their lives.


Here’s how it works

  • It starts with an idea – People across the developing world are bursting with business ideas – all they need is a helping hand to get started.

  • The entrepreneur requests a loan – Entrepreneurs approach a local Microfinance Institution (MFI) that is a Lendwithcare partner and, if their ideas show promise, they get the go-ahead for the loan they need to get their business going.

  • We lend to an entrepreneur– The MFI uploads the entrepreneur’s profile to Lendwithcare. We can see these in the Entrepreneurs section, where we can choose which promising business idea we’d like to support.

  • The entrepreneur’s business grows – Entrepreneur profiles are updated so we can see how their business is transforming their lives.

  • Our loan is repaid– The entrepreneur pays back their loan in installments to the MFI, which transfers these repayments to CARE International. They then credit the repayment to our Lendwithcare account. It’s as simple as that!

  • We decide what happens next – When our loan is repaid we make another loan, effectively leveraging our money to help more entrepreneurs turn their ideas and hopes for a better future into reality.

So that’s it – that’s why I think you should Lend rather than Give

LendWithCare is simple, effective and proven way for us to help fellow entrepreneurs in developing countries.

And as an Ambassador in Northern Ireland for LendWithCare I would like to work with your CSR Team to show your business how a small investment can make a big difference.
