We loan because...
Dreams are universal, opportunity is not.
Microcredit is about giving hope. When you’re talking about making loans to women whose income is less than $1 a day, you can easily make the leap to see what a microloan can make possible. The women I’ve met in Uganda and Guatemala are so resourceful, and it’s just amazing to see how, with their courage and diligence, they create small businesses with such tiny amounts of money. These women work so hard, and they manage to pay off their loans, and the first thing they do is educate and feed their kids. It’s amazing that the world is not investing more in this resource.

― Natalie Portman
I dream of the humane dawn when we shan't be able to fill our bellies in comfort, while other folks go hungry - or sleep in warm beds, when others shiver in the cold - when we shan't be able to kneel or thank god for blessings before our shining altars, while our fellow beings anywhere in the world are kneeling in either physical or spiritual subjection.
Abhijit Naskar, Conscience over Nonsense

Let the echo of your footsteps spark a ray of hope in the heart of the hopeless and appear as help to the helpless.
Abhijit Naskar, Conscience over Nonsense

About us
For many years now, I have been impressed by the power of a simple, small loan to those for whom fate and circumstance have resulted in disadvantage. Maintaining peoples integrity and showing them trust, whilst facilitating a way for them to rebuild their own lives is such a meaningful way of alleviating poverty. By placing microfinance in the global spotlight, awareness of this most effective anti-poverty tool will undoubtedly, and thankfully, increase.

― Queen Rania Al-Abdullah of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan Emissary for the International Year of Microcredit 2005
