It starts with an idea

Whether it's opening a market stall, or perhaps a small tailoring business, or diversifying the crops they grow, people across the developing world are bursting with business ideas – all they need is a helping hand to get started.

The entrepreneur requests a loan

Entrepreneurs approach a local Microfinance Institution (MFI) that is a Lendwithcare partner and, if their ideas show promise, they get the go-ahead for the loan they need to get their business going.

You lend to an entrepreneur

The MFI uploads the entrepreneur’s profile to Lendwithcare. You can see these in the Entrepreneurs section, where you can choose which promising business idea you’d like to support.

The entrepreneur’s business grows

Entrepreneur profiles are updated so you can see how their business is transforming their lives.Your loan is repaid

Your loan is repaid


The entrepreneur pays back their loan in installments to the MFI, which transfers these repayments to CARE International. We then credit the repayment to your Lendwithcare account. It’s as simple as that!

You decide what happens next


When your loan is repaid you can withdraw it if you wish. You can also donate it to CARE International or like the club , you can make another loan, helping more entrepreneurs turn their ideas and hopes for a better future into reality.
