51Give is dedicated to lending money to Chinese social entrepreneurs as well as to rural and urban families to power their lives with renewable technologies. This financial process is referred to as “Sustainable Microfinance”. 51Give is currently running programs in half a dozen Chinese provinces (coastal, rural and urban areas) and is amongst the first to bring sustainable microfinance to China and to provide brand new solutions to the country’s poverty and sustainable development issues.

51Give stands out, because the loans not only alleviate poverty, but improve the environment, reduce carbon emissions, and enhance access to renewable energy in China. Borrowers have used loans to acquire equipment for sustainable businesses such as biogas power, home solar systems, and micro wind power.

51Give is not a charity; it is a social entrepreneurship business that operates on a philosophy of sustainability and is dedicated to making a long lasting difference.
