New way to invest in Africa

MyC4.com is a web-based platform that allows you to look up a list of African entrepreneurs who need funding for their projects and to offer them loans. You bid a certain interest rate, which is accepted as long as it is below the maximum the entrepreneur is willing to accept and as long as others have not bid below you. You can lend as little as 5 euros. Default rate is in the single digits.

Hat tip David!

    Thank you for this post. It is something I will definately look into. Some of use have been “blessed” with people back home who:

    1 Seem to block anyone of substance from talking to us
    2. Hounding us with useless, silly schemes
    3. Acting like our politicians

    It is hard, if you are not at home to really find real people, within the short bursts of time we are home.

    Legally it has not yet been solved how North American Investors can withdraw money from their MyC4 accounts. So if you agree that you do not withdraw any money at any time from Myc4,you are most welcome aboard.

    Does not then seem to be a “loan” for those of us in North America.

  • For example, you never want to pour grease down the drain. That is what all our customers appreciate about our services and our employees.
    Commercial or Industrial Plumbing Services: Plumbers will also be in a position to offer various plumbing services to industrial market.

    Where to find the best plumber and services in Reno. A person who is calling out a plumbing company needs to know what sort of work they do,
    whether they can come out in an emergency and also a bit about the company.
    These kind of water heaters heat up your water as soon as it is
    being used, so you are not wasting energy on keeping your water hot when it is not being used.
    The nice thing about doing a specific search phrase like plumber Surrey BC is that you get
    back local results of plumbers in your area. Repairing a
    bigger plumbing problem will obviously cost more money.
