We loan because...
Inspired by the reporting of Nick Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn in their book “Half the Sky”, we believe that microfinance lending, especially to women, is a particularly effective way to break the cycle of poverty and abuse. We believe that empowering women throughout the world is in our enlightened, common self interest; as this will lead to a generally more peaceful, compassionate world.

About us
We are a group of friends worldwide who share a common interest and vision for effective micro lending. We focus on loans to women or groups of women who seek elevate, empower and educate their families and communities through the creation of goods or services. If you have a “heart of compassion” and want to really make a difference for those who have the will to help themselves but lack the means, please join us.
