Borrower's quote

I own a grocery store, which is how I feed my family. I have been running this business for one year. I am applying for a loan to increase my sales turnover. I am going to bring in grocery products from the city to resell to local residents who are not able to go to the city. I need this help to buy and transport grocery products. Thank you in advance!

Rates and transparency

  • This loan does not pay any interest to the lender.
  • Following your loan commitment, you have 7 calendar days to assert your right of withdrawal, by mail at contact@microworld.org.
  • The MFI will reimburse the lender in case of default of the entrepreneur but there is no guarantee or insurance given by the MFI.
  • 100% of the money collected is sent to the MFI, even if the project is not fully funded on the site.
  • The MFI then makes a loan to the micro-entrepreneur and charges an interest rate in order to cover its operational and financial costs.
  • The beneficiaries have been well informed about the risks of over-indebtedness and the consequences of payment default.
  • The platform earns a commission from the MFI for the service it provides, which helps to fund its running costs.
  • More effective than a simple donation, micro-credit promotes long-term sustainable economic development rather than short term help.
