Microlending is at the core of our mission and operations. While many entrepreneurs require small amounts of capital, most cannot raise the required funds from traditional sources, usually due to poor credit history, financial instability, or lack of small loan providers. LEND provides up to $10,000 to qualified entrepreneurs at an affordable interest rate, to be repaid over 1-2 years.
