We loan because...
We believe in the power of microfinance to alleviate poverty and empower the poor. We know that microfinance creates opportunities to improve lives, not just fleeting fortunes.

About us
We realize we are privileged to live and work in the beautiful city of San Diego, and we feel that compared to much of the world, we have abundant resources. We want to share this wealth with entrepreneurs in developing countries.

We unite the microfinance community in San Diego by hosting networking events and speakers series and providing a website that serves as an events calendar, jobs board, volunteer database, community forum, and news source.
