Mission

Zidisha is the world's first direct peer-to-peer microlending service to bridge the international wealth divide, allowing individuals in the US and internationally to lend to and communicate with economically marginalized small business owners in developing countries without local intermediaries. We've been featured in numerous press and media for our groundbreaking work in using internet and mobile phone technologies to connect entrepreneurs in some of the world's most isolated and impoverished places with the international peer-to-peer lending market.

Direct peer-to-peer microlending

Zidisha(http://www.zidisha.org/) .(http://www.zidisha.org/) org(http://www.zidisha.org/) is an innovative nonprofit that lets ordinary web users make microloans to entrepreneurs around the world. The loans allow the individuals to start small businesses to provide higher income for their families, and once repaid the loan funds are returned to lenders who may in turn fund new individuals of their choice. What makes Zidisha unique is that there are no intermediaries.  The borrowers themselves post their loan applications and communicate directly with lenders as their business investments grow.  Linking entrepreneurs directly with the international peer-to-peer lending market gives them the chance to source business growth capital far more easily and affordably than was previously possible in developing countries.
