Club of Royston,Herts, UK
President: Graeme Dargie
. The   Rotary   Club   of   Royston   lends   money   to   entrepreneurs   in   various   parts   of   the   world   where   most   good   can   be   done.      Imagine   a young   farmer   in   Rwanda   who   has   a   small   farm   of   only   two   acres.      He   realises   that   he   would   be   far   more   successful   if   he   could   buy another   two   acres   but   he   does   not   have   the   cash.      He   goes   to   the   Microfinance   Institution   in   his   local   town,   they   have   a   look   at   his scheme   and   agrees   that   it   is   a   good   idea   and   promise   to   raise   the   funds   on   condition   that   he   attends   classes   to   learn   how   to   handle his money and to farm his land most economically. The   Microfinance   Institution   then   applies   to   Lend   with   Care   who   then   show   the   loan   on   their   website   and   ask   for   offers   to   lend   part of   the   amount   required.      We,   and   many   other   lenders,   then   make   their   offers   and   the   amount   lent   is   taken   from   our   account.      The amount   requested   by   the   entrepreneurs   is   usually   in   the   range   of   £200   to   £5000.      Our   contribution   is   usually   £200.      As   the entrepreneur   pays   back   the   loan   so   it   is   paid   back   into   our   account   and   when   there   is   sufficient   we   can   make   another   loan   to someone else. We   made   our   first   loan   in   February   2013   and   have   made   a   total   of   62   loans   so   far.      The   Club   has   put   £2577   into   our   account   but with   the   repayments   that   have   been   made   and   lent   again,   our   total   lending   amounts   to   £11,650.      Our   money   has   been   used   four times over! We   receive   no   interest   from   these   loans   but   we   are   sure   that   the   entrepreneurs   make   good   use   of   the   loans   to   boost   their   standard of living of them and their families, their employees and the general economic life of their community. Shown   below   are   a   representative   sample   of   entrepeneurs   that   Royston   Rotary   has   supported.      Please   click   on   any   of   these   to   see further details or for the complete list click here.
