That’s the name of a microlending platform, where lenders can lend to palestinian entrepreneurs in the Palestinean territories. I have not used Lendforpeace.org, but from what I read, it works just like Kiva but targets a specific region. Lendforpeace launched 5 days ago. When I looked today there where 8 loan requests in various degrees of funding.
Lendforpeace is a US non-profit organisation founded by 2 Jews and 2 Palestinians: Sam Adelsberg, Andrew Dudum, David Fraga and Al Taj.
Our mission is to use micro-lending to promote economic opportunity and political stability in the Middle East.
At LendforPeace.org you can make a loan directly to a vetted micro-entrepreneur in the West Bank. We work with US government-approved microfinance institutions on the ground to deliver your capital along with training and guidance to low-income individuals who are interested in starting or expanding their own small businesses.
LendforPeace.org is supported by grants from the Clinton Global Initiative, Ashoka Youth Venture, Davis Projects for Peace.
