Microlending is a relatively low risk and high return investment. This is because investors can fund small loans and can earn a healthy rate of return in relation to the amount invested. Becoming a microfinance lender is an economical way for military members to invest in other military members. The peer to peer market is flooded with loan notes making it very easy for borrowers to get approved for military financing, and for investors to support their fellow servicemen. Whether a veteran entrepreneur wants to alleviate local poverty by funding a community program or financing a small business project for an ambitious veteran, the microfinance industry offers thousands of loans that can fit the right investor to the right borrower. Getting started with independent investing has never been easier.
Microfinance institutions (MFIs) can help establish a financial foundation for budding investors to learn how the process works before actually investing any money. Before buying stocks or other high risk investments, a respected active duty military member, reservist, or veteran can try their hand with these friendly and socially responsible microloans.
