Has anybody had the oppurtunity to do this kind of investment?
From what I gather, you loan somebody in a poor country an amount of say, $25. To them that is a large sum and would allow them to start a business and become self sufficient, they pay back the loan with interest.
Apparently the risk is quite low. I'm assuming that the interest on the loan would be quite low as well though, making it low risk, low return.
Is anyone here on ASF involved in this kind of 'investment'? Is it available to the general market?
