Lenders experiences

  • Interviewer and social entrepreneur Luella van Turnhout

    "Lendahand offers a win-win situation for everyone: it’s a great way to stimulate development in poor countries from the inside out. Moreover, it’s a better use of my savings when it is lent to entrepreneurs who would otherwise have no access to financing."

    Interviewer and social entrepreneur Luella van Turnhout from Amsterdam
  • Organisation consultant  Suzanne Geysendorpher

    "9 years ago I decided to start my own management advisory firm. When I told this to my father he said: "Suus, I know that you want to do this on your own, but if you need me financially, I will be there for you." This gave me more creative freedom to flourish and to stand straight. Now it is time for me to give back to the entrepreneurs of Lendahand. This way they can excel, and, at their own time, they can help others further! "

    Organisation consultant Suzanne Geysendorpher from Utrecht
