Essentially, many people feel that it’s the ‘bankers’ making up the 1% who are reaping ever increasing rewards, whilst the 99% have to pick up the tab whenever the smart set in the 1% get it wrong (sub prime loans, Lehmans, Greek debt, etc.).
Yet, the Microloan Foundation, is one type of ‘banker’ that is very much part of the 99%.
- 99% of the Malawian population has no access to commercial banks – but we lend to them
- 99% of all loans provided by Microloan to some of the poorest people in the poorest countries of the world are repaid in full (no bailouts for these borrowers)
- 99% of our work is to improve the lives of poor women in the poorest country in the world (well – maybe it’s 100%)
So if you want to support a ‘banker’ that supports the 99% – then Donate to MicroLoan today.
