Delighted to be giving to entrepreneurs. This giving program is a new initiative for our business community, Out of the Box Biz for this year. Why? because we value and are grateful for the high quality members we support. Therefore we wanted to celebrate and share our appreciation by paying it forward to entrepreneurs in countries with less opportunities or with different challenges.
This week we are giving to entrepreneurs through micro loans to entrepreneurs in Peru and in Timor-Leste.
In Peru, a young man, Rudy
contributes to his local community as a dentist. Our KIVA loan was the final amount needed to make this full loan of $1250 go ahead. On this occasion our amount was the final amount for the loan to go ahead. So we know this will be going ahead and therefore making a difference to Rudy and his community.
In Timor-Leste, Acita
needs a loan for fishing materials to grow her fishing business. Her micro loan needs a small amount of support before it goes ahead. Details are here.
