Forum > Lender Questions > Loans and gifts
I am a small lender, mostly lending when I have a few dollars leftover in my PP account. I'm wondering if there is a way to gift an amount. For instance, if a borrower needs $7 left on a loan, but I have $10. Is there a way to "gift" the other $3? Yes, I could loan the other $3 somewhere else, but sometimes there are projects that touch me. Again, it's about an occasional small amount over a stated loan.
That was a wonderful idea but zidisha has principals (which are also good) thanks
It's a thoughtful idea.
There isn't a way of doing that at the moment, but I'll pass on your suggestion to Julia, our Director, and let you know what she says.
God bless you Julie for Such Kindest Heart.
I heard back from Julia and her reply was:
"Out of fairness and to keep it clear among borrowers that Zidisha is a platform for loans that should be repaid, we don't support donations. I would suggest platforms like Watsi, New Story and GiveDirectly if lenders are interested in sending donations to individuals directly."
Thanks for finding out for me, Dave. I'm not really interested in the other platforms. There were just a couple of stories here that were beautifully touching. I understand Julia's position, though.
Halloo Julia, am grateful to you for your benevolent works you are doing keep it up God will richly bless you. Please support me to fund my loan. Thank you
Hallo Miss Julie I want you to help my loan application in zidisha. Please check my account, please join my lender every time I apply for a loan. Because the fresh funds and loan donors really helped me to develop my small business. Thank you

Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.thus its my suggestion we create a plat form for extra among fro our organization to assist any member who is running charity organization for the needy
