Rotary Club of Belfast

Lendwithcare

lendwithcareThe Club are actively supporting Lendwithcare - a microfinance website set up by aid organisation Care International UK to help people in low-income countries to start or expand their own small business.

The entrepreneurs do not want charity but support to enable them make their own decisions, develop their business, feed and educate their families. These are loans not handouts; the money is paid back in instalments, over a specified period. A small loan (typically £15 -£45) from many investors means a huge opportunity for the entrepreneur.

The Club see our Lendwithcare donations as providing direct assistance to seed new businesses and provide much needed support to business people hoping to provide a sustainable future for their families and enhance their local communities. These small loans have a dramatic impact in societies less fortunate than ourselves.

The Club have invested in 114 entrepreneurs since January 2018 and are currently investing in 23 entrepreneurs (detailed below) the balance of requested funds being made up by other individuals/organisations (an * indicates not yet fully funded). Lendwithcare decided in the current circumstances, from 27 October 2023, to write off future repayments from loans to entrepreneurs in Gaza - this impacted 1 Club loan which was added in July 2023  -  all remaining 90 loans (detailed below) have been fully repaid.​
