We loan because...
We are a voluntary organisation set up to help empower women and children throughout the world.
Our objectives include promoting trust and empathy between women from diverse cultures, and researching, developing and supporting sustainable projects that transform women’s lives through addressing the root causes of poverty and suffering. .

“70% of the poor in the world are women.”

Nora Castaneda – Women’s Development bank of Venezuela.

“Much of women’s work is not underpaid, it is entirely unpaid…
The enormous demands of unpaid work reduce many women’s opportunities to participate in the paid workforce”
"Women’s unpaid labour subsidises the economy”, Penny Kome.

“It is estimated that women perform 66% of the world’s work, but earn 10% of the income, and own less than 1% of the world’s property” United Nations Children’s Fund.

"There is no policy more effective in promoting development, health and education than the empowerment of women and girls.
And I would venture that no policy is more important in preventing conflict, or in achieving reconciliation after a conflict has ended".
United Nations, Secretary General.

About us
We are a multicultural, grassroots organisation, staffed by a team of over 30 volunteers from 6 continents. We work together online in a 'virtual' office. We have a fast-growing network of over 25,000 supporters from throughout the world.
We have many contacts and are keen to help support women in developing sustainable projects. We are building a database of women's groups and case studies of successful projects and are keen to hear from anyone who is able to help contribute to this.
