How it Works Video (2 Minutes)

Lendwithcare brings together entrepreneurs in developing countries with people with the power to help them - people like you. Run by one of the world's leading aid and development organisations, Lendwithcare is a revolutionary way for you to help people in the developing world to transform their lives.


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

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!
