We loan because...
we want to give others the opportunity to strive for self-sufficiency, financial security and independence, and in doing so, allow them to have a better education and health opportunities.

About us
'Merdeka' is Indonesian for 'freedom' and is one that has resonated with me since I first learned the word in my early teens.

I recognise that I have been fortunate in my life in having the opportunity and freedom to consider options and make choices regarding education, employment, travel and life in general.

I invite friends, family and anyone else who is inspired to make a difference to join me in helping others to strive for these same opportunities. To make a better life for themselves and their family. To ultimately have the freedom to make the same kind of choices in their life.

Thanks for your participation!
