Lend With Care

Charities - lendwithcare

I joined Lendwithcare on 6 April 2012 because this ‘microfinance system’ of giving is a lot different from the number of other charities that I have given money to in the past.  For me not seeing any results from my gifts did not encourage me to give more.  Donations to other organisations seemed to disappear into oblivion as I had no means of tracking what I had personally given.

With Lendwithcare I can see up March 10th 2020 that I have helped over 17,980 entrepreneurs, along with 54,852 of their family members.  This, in turn, has created over 9,737 jobs.

So what attracted me to Lendwithcare?  I can put myself into the ‘budding entrepreneurs’ shoes’.  I wanted to help people to start their own businesses, something that I did with just 37p in 1974.  It didn’t occur to me that there would be ordinary people who would lend you any money free of interest in those days*.

I know how these loans help the entrepreneurs, how the repayment system puts them in a better position of being responsible for their actions in their own businesses.  If the repayment system didn’t exist then the entrepreneurs would not be encouraged and motivated to build strong businesses for the long term.

One of my long-term goals was to write a book about my life; being a dyslexic this was a huge challenge in itself.   The book was written to inspire people with Dyslexia and ADHD, for people starting out or wishing to improve their business.  I think everyone can gain something from reading my book.
