Lendahand is a small, fast-growing social fin-tech. We run two online impact investing platforms that allow individuals and institutions to create impact in emerging markets while earning a decent financial return on investment.
Through our platforms, people can provide debt funding to non-bank financial institutions and fin-techs in +- 20 emerging countries such as the Uganda, Mozambique, Georgia, and Colombia or to renewable energy companies, mostly active in Sub Sahara Africa.
As a fin-tech company, we are part of the revolution that is reshaping the banking- and investment management landscape. Lendahand has found market fit and is in the scale up phase. Three years ago, we raised €10,000 per month, at the moment that is well over €1,500,000 per month. We expect to continue this steep growth curve, which translates into €35 million in new investments in 2018!
With a MiFID license (as an investment firm) from the Dutch regulator in our pocket, we have launched a dedicated solar investment platform in the UK and are about to launch the Lendahand.com platform in several other European countries.
The Lendahand team consists of +-13 people. Some call themselves the experienced guys, and some team young gods (we leave it up to you to which group you think you belong). Together we form a dynamic and high achieving team that gets things done and is having fun while doing so.
Last year we were awarded the “Positive Finance” trophy organised by Dazure and the foundation New Financial Forum. We are part of the B Corp community and a member of NPM, the Dutch platform for inclusive finance.
A snapshot of all the countries we operate in, all from our small office in Rotterdam. We've funded campaigns in 20 countries across the globe, and we're currently adding a new country to the portfolio on nearly every month.
