We loan because...
Every small, individual action can make a big difference -- especially if millions participate. A modest micro-loan will give an entrepreneur a hand-up to start a new business and provide for his or her family.

About us
Intel is the corporate sponsor of the Small Things Challenge. The company is providing financial support as well as providing opportunities throughout the year to increase global awareness for the issues addressed by the Small Things Challenge – providing opportunities so children in developing countries can attend primary school and their parents can earn higher incomes.
The Intel Small Things Challenge builds upon Intel’s 40 years of active involvement in education. The company is again investing about $100 million in education in 2009. Over the last decade, Intel has invested over $1 billion and Intel employees have donated more than 2 million hours towards improving education in 50 countries.
Individuals can provide support and find more information about the Small Things Challenge – including the online petition and a video featuring musicians and actors who support the cause – at www.smallthingschallenge.com.
