Target demographics: Zidisha borrowers are located in low-income countries where small business loans are often unavailable, or carry prohibitively expensive interest rates and collateral requirements. Zidisha allows entrepreneurs who have built up successful credit records with local microfinance institutions to access progressively larger business expansion loans at interest rates they can afford, limited only by their own loan repayment performance.

Zidisha is the next generation of microfinance. It is the only peer-to-peer microfinance organization that allows lenders to make low-interest loans to borrowers directly, without any intermediaries. Launched in October 2009, Zidisha has since raised over $350,000 for over 600 small businesses in developing countries. Visit Zidisha.org for more information.
Loans raised: $352,006 USD

Businesses financed: 602

Average lender interest: 3.08%

Members Worldwide: 2040
