Introducing: Micro - World Vision's Microfinance Initiative

At, you can browse entrepreneurs who are looking for a hand up, not a hand-out. Many of our entrepreneurs are women in rural areas who would otherwise be unable to access support of this kind. These small business owners will use the loan you funded to improve their business prospects and their lives.

It is tremendous what a donation of as little as $25 can achieve. By joining the Micro community, you'll experience firsthand the impact your involvement has on the recipient, his or her family, and an entire community.

Repayment rates for microloans are extraordinarily high — around 98.7 percent. More importantly, once repaid, the impact of your good deed is amplified and leveraged as it is re-loaned and invested again and again in the community. It's compounded good, and you can be a part of it. It really is an inspiring experience.

Five years ago, Nilza Barbosa was unemployed. But thanks to a small loan, today she employs 40 women in her own fabric doll business--check out the story in full on the Micro website.
