Microfinance, like New Media, puts the power in the hands of the little guy. Rare thinking entrepreneurs like you know what it takes to go at it on your own. You are willing to risk it all and reap the rewards. If you are grateful for what you have, and you’d like to discover how you can quickly and painlessly give a poor person a hand up instead of a hand out — take three-minutes to review this report. You’ll quickly realize how big of a difference you can really make with a very small action.

In India, Vadla Baguma with her buffalo business is one small example of the power of microfinance. To date she has repaid in full all her loans up to $600. With her most recent loan, Baguma decided to diversify beyond their buffalo milk business. She purchased a sewing machine and does mending for hire. With this additional income she is able to send her son to school. He’s the first in their family to do so.

Women stepping up

In the world of microfinance, most loans go to women. Industry averages run at 95% repayment rates with women. The money when repaid cycles back in and is re-loaned to other micro-entrepreneurs. The money supply grows with interest being added to the repayments.

Microfinancing is a way for poor people to get access to the same economic power that creates wealth in every capitalist economy in the world.

The poor of the world seem likes such a big job. We all want to do it, but it’s difficult to get your hands around. With microfinance you — yes you, one single person — CAN make a significant, and direct impact on the lives of dozens and possibly hundreds of people.

You can change a family’s destiny right now

This weekend, September 13-16th, as speakers at the World Internet Marketing Main Event in San Francisco, we’re proud to be part of a special funding drive for Unitus called “Internet Marketers Against Poverty.” And you, as an independent, gifted business person, can help an entrepreneur change her family’s destiny this weekend.

Unitus is one of the world’s leading microfinance accelerators. They won the 2006 Fast Company Social Capitalist Award. Unitus invests in microfinancing organizations in the world’s poorest countries with finances and consulting. They are decreasing poverty by increasing access to finance, and that is where you come in.

With just $5.50 you can help one micro-entrepreneur fuel their dreams to better the lives of their family. And while you can do that anytime, this weekend’s funding drive is rewarding you for taking action now.

Normally I shy away from “rewarding” people for helping others. But this venture is so different, so powerful — because it’s a “hand up” rather than a “hand out” — that Deb and I just had to participate.

We, along with dozens of other marketers and entrepreneurs have donated products that are bundled together as thank you gifts for your taking action during this funding drive.

Depending on your donation, you can get up to $2,200 in high quality products as a reward for taking action. (Note: rules for contributions of products required that these be products that are currently sold, not given away free. So this is a real bonus package.) The goal is to raise $300,000 in four days.

To help micro-entrepreneurs glimpse a shadow of the self-sustaining dream that you and I live as successful business people live, go to http://www.60secondmotivators.com/unitusbonus.php now.

When the Wright brothers flew their plane for the first time, it stayed in the air for 20-seconds. It covered 120-ft. At that time we could have said “so what.” But that little flight changed the world. For the first time a human being flew.

Microfinance is the Wright Bothers plane in the fight against poverty. It is covering that 120-ft in the efforts to help poor people. If you could, (and you can,) wouldn’t you be willing to help get it off that ground and help the poor around the world help themselves?

Help us hit the $300,000 goal in added funding this weekend. Go to http://www.60secondmotivators.com/unitusbonus.php now and choose your donation level.

You’ll be rewarded not just with the knowledge that you’re given a hand up to entrepreneurs in the world’s poorest countries, and directly impacted the lives of hundreds of people in a tangible, lasting way — you’ll also get the bonus gift packages listed as our thank you gift for helping.
