HOW WE HELP
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
We aim to treat people in the underdeveloped world with dignity and respect, not pity. The biggest barrier for many people in the developing world who are wishing to start up a business or small enterprise is finance. They simply don't have access to the same borrowing opportunities that many of us take for granted. Therefore instead of treating the poor as objects of our pity we see them as creative individuals. Instead of motivating people to donate through guilt, we generate income through people being happy to use us for their everyday online spending. Instead of constantly giving money to the poor, we strategically lend to creative entrepreneurs who will then become empowered to help their families and entire communities. Spend To Lend aims to better the lives of the world's poorest through enterprise, not aid. This provides them with self-motivation and determination while creating a long-term solution instead of a feel-good moment for donors.
