Lenders experiences

  • Mustard producer Ton Schröer

    "When I started making mustard in 1978 and sold the jars on a bike, it was all because people were willing to lend me some money. Their trust in me motivated me to persevere. Now I hope to be able to give others a push in the right direction. Besides that, it's an initiative based on mutual respect; it's not a donation but a loan that needs to be repaid."

    Mustard producer Ton Schröer from Zierikzee
  • Associate Professor dr. ir. André Nijhof (Nyenrode University)

    "I see money in the bank account as something anonymous. Money with Lendahand offers an opportunity to entrepreneurs in developing countries to improve the quality of life and connect people to each other. I want to be part of that.”"

    Associate Professor dr. ir. André Nijhof (Nyenrode University) from Eibergen
