Inequality between mature economies and emerging markets has left millions in poverty and without opportunity. This has consequences such as lack of education, gender inequality, and unsafe living conditions.
Lendahand empowers you to make your impact across the world by investing in companies in emerging markets working hard to improve their local economies and communities.
How it works
Choose from proven companies
Our experienced team selects proven companies and financial institutions that need funding to grow their businesses. These companies then list “projects” on our site for you to crowdfund.
Invest in the projects that fit your needs
Invest in the projects most important to you based on factors such as job creation, environmental impact, or gender equality. Start from €10 and earn up to 7% annual interest.
Fight poverty in emerging markets
Help close the €4.6 trillion funding gap facing SMEs in emerging markets, create jobs, improve local communities, and contribute to a sustainable financial system that works for everyone.
