Lend with care

Lendwithcare brings together entrepreneurs in developing countries with people with the power to help them

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.

The entrepreneur’s business grows



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


Your loan is repaid


The entrepreneur pays back their loan in instalments 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!

We have helped another 14 people expand their business through this amzing scheme
