The UCity Micro Credit Loan Ministry of the University United Methodist Church, in St. Louis, has been making loans to small entrepreneurs around the world for three years. They have made over 150 loans in close to 50 countries. The loans vary from 25 to 100 dollars. It is a way of giving poor and struggling people hope by making them more self-reliant. The repayment rate on the loans they have made is an amazing 98%. They started by meeting in the UCity library to make the ministry more accessible to non-church members but now they generally meet on line using Skype enabling people to join in from anywhere.
