COMING SOON! MICROLOANS.
From little things, big things grow! Microcredit is the extension of very small loans (microloans) to borrowers who typically lack collateral, steady employment and a verifiable credit history. It is designed not only to support entrepreneurship and alleviate poverty, but also in many cases to empower women and uplift entire communities by extension. In many communities, women lack the highly stable employment histories that traditional lenders tend to require. As of 2009 an estimated 74 million men and women held microloans that totalled US$38 billion.Grameen Bank reports that repayment success rates are between 95 and 98 percent.
Very soon you will be able to come on board either as a borrower or as a lender. Let’s look at some examples of how it works…
- You are a low income earner in Australia and you have a business idea or maybe your fridge has just blown up and you need a small loan to get things on track – you can apply for a microloan with us. The money may be sourced from us or it may be sourced from members of the public who choose to assist you.
- You are on a good income and you want to help others, you can choose a borrower from Australia or overseas and lend them a small amount to get their loan started. You can either choose to get repaid and then you can repeat! You can also choose to donate, but the borrower will still need to repay the loan, the repayments will then be used to assist other borrowers.
