“Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Give him microcredit instead and he‘ll eat for a lifetime.” This is the mantra that PropertyFinder.ae is living by this Ramadan. The UAE property portal has teamed up with Pi Slice, to raise awareness and funds to help low-income individuals laun a personal business.
Pi Slice, the first web-based social platform dedicated to online funding for Micro-Entrepreneurs in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) partnered up with propertyfinder.ae, back in March, and launched a ‘lending page’ to encourage the wider community towards online micro-lending. Companies and individuals in the UAE can view a list of unique micro financed projects through the joint page and choose to provide support to the project of their choice. The link to the ‘lending page’ can be found here.
“It’s no easy feat becoming an entrepreneur especially since one’s potential is often stunted by the process of raising capital,” said Michael Lahyani, CEO and Founder of propertyfinder.ae. “Dubai’s an emergent hub for social enterprise and we look forward to working with Pi Slice to fill this need, nurture the entrepreneurial spirit and advance economic opportunity throughout the region.”
