Rotary Club of Belfast


lendwithcareThe Club are actively supporting - a microfinance website set up by aid organisation Care International UK to help people in Benin, Cambodia, Ecuador, Malawi, Palestinian territories, Peru, the Philippines, Rwanda, Vietnam, Zambia and Zimbabwe 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, typically over six to 12 months. 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 can have a dramatic impact in societies less fortunate than ourselves.

The Club are currently investing in these entrepreneurs the balance being made up by other individuals/organisations:​​
