LendwithCare is a microfinance initiative. Through LendWithCare we make loans to entrepreneurs in developing countries, to help them help themselves and their community.
A recent update from Cheryl Rizaga in the Philippines.
Cheryl has been a proud fishmonger for more than twenty-five years now. Through her efforts she was able to support the needs of their children with the help of her hardworking husband. At first, Cheryl purchased one single motorcycle and then attached a sidecar on it so they can use it to transport their everyday fishes from their house or local fish port to their fish stall in the market. She bought another motorcycle to use as their means of transportation. The couple will continue to work hard with their business because this is the primary source of income and they still have one child who is still in high school.

Join Rotary, and do something good with your time!
We're not a secret organisation, or an international capitalist conspiracy - just a group of good friends having lots of fun whilst helping others!
Rotary is made up of mostly professional and business people, men and women, all races and religions, with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members work locally, regionally, and internationally to build communities, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio, under the motto "Service Above Self"
Oh, and by the way, we have a lot of fun and friendship along the way!
Joining your local Rotary club is a great way to meet people, make contacts, and do some good in the world. Like any club, membership is by invitation, but we're always looking for new members, especially people who GET THINGS DONE.
Want to know more? Have a look at this video.
There's quite a lot of other stuff about Rotary on the web. Yoiu could also try this video (a bit American, but try to ignore that, and listen to what they're saying).
If you think that Rotary might be for you, email the club via the Contact Form. You won't regret it.
