Community Micro Lending is a non-profit society that connects local lenders to local borrowers in the Southwest BC region.
Local borrowers are people who want to turn their idea and passion into a livelihood but can’t get the credit they need from a bank or credit union.
Local lenders are people who want to strengthen the fabric of the local economy by supporting a local small-scale entrepreneur.
Together, we are transforming lives.
Interested in borrowing?
When you're ready, create a profile and fill out an Online Application.
Once your application has been approved, watch the community fill your loan by heading to the Lend page.
After your entrepreneur loan has been fully filled, you will be matched with a Mentor.

Here is where I will blog all about the parks of Australia.
You can make a blog on your website by creating a category to write your blog posts in (this one is called Park Blog). Each blog post will be an article in that category. If you make a category blog menu link with 1 column it will look like this page, if you display the category description then this part is displayed.
To enhance your blog you may want to add extensions for comments, interacting with social network sites, tagging, and keeping in contact with your readers. You can also enable the syndication that is included in Joomla (in the Integration Options set Show Feed Link to Show and make sure to display the syndication module on the page).
These are my photos from parks I have visited (I didn't take them, they are all from Wikimedia Commons).
This shows you how to make a simple image gallery using articles in com_content.
In each article put a thumbnail image before a "readmore" and the full size image after it. Set the article to Show Intro Text: Hide.
