Social lending promotes entrepreneurship among the parties involved. It creates commitment. And it promotes creativity among loan recipients. Experience tells us that their entrepreneurship and creativity help them to make the best-possible use of the loan.
The loans granted by the Achmea Foundation are always what are known as soft loans. These are either interest-free loans or loans subject to a very low rate of interest. An added advantage of this type of financing is that we can reach many more people with our capital. After all, all the money that is paid back can be reinvested.
