How it works:
There are many people living in poverty around the world who desperately want to be self-sufficient, but they need a helping hand to get started. Micro Finance Institute (MFI) will enable these people to draw up a business plan. Through Lend With Care, organisations like Rotary are able to see these business plans and lend money through MFI to get these people started. Money is paid back as they start earning. Once the loan is repaid we can then look for further people to help. As a club we agreed to set aside a total of £500.00. From the repayments we have received, further loans have now be made.
