The past year has seen phenomenal growth at lendwithcare.org. At that stage we were celebrating £1m of loans made. In March this year we commemorated the doubling of that monumental amount! And I am thrilled to tell you that last week, on 30th August 2013, we smashed through that and our 3 millionth pound was lent by Sharon from Suffolk to Mrs Essowouna Simbama from Togo! Thus far, lendwithcare lenders have:
- Made over 80,000 loans
- To fully fund over 5,000 entrepreneurs
- From seven different developing countries
Astounding, isn’t it? This achievement is the work of our fantastic lenders – congratulations and thank you for your support!
