A showcase of the work of global documentary photographers who have been commissioned by arts social enterprise FotoDocument to photograph the work of CARE International UK’s micro-lending platform, Lendwithcare.org. The photo essays feature inspiring women from five of the countries where Lendwithcare operates, visually illustrating how microfinance can provide lasting social and economic impact and change.

Lendwithcare provides business skills training and microloans to entrepreneurs in developing countries as a means for people to work their way out of poverty with dignity. Individuals and businesses can become lenders through Lendwithcare and once the loans have been repaid, the funds can be reinvested or reclaimed by the lender.

Commissioned photographers include: Ana Caroline de Lima, Cynthia Matonhodze, Shai Chishty (speaker), Veejay Villafranca and Tsvangirayi Mukwazhi.

FotoDocument will also be launching Year 2 of the Marilyn Stafford FotoReportage Award for women documentary photographers which has been generously supported by Olympus.
