Why Give when you can Lend? Find out about LendwithCare

Northern Ireland LendWithCare Amabassador Gavin Walker introduces the programme

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.

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

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

  • Your 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 your Lendwithcare account. It’s as simple as that!

  • You decide what happens next – When your loan is repaid you can make another loan, effectively leveraging your money to help more entrepreneurs turn their ideas and hopes for a better future into reality. Alternatively you can reclaim your initial investment.

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

LendWithCare is a simple, effective and proven way for you 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.
