The MicroLoan Foundation is delighted to announce its new poet in residence, Beth Noble.

“I have always had a keen interest in international development and women’s issues” says Beth. “Being a mum and self-taught poet and artist, I’d love to help other women in Africa fulfil their dreams and get their own businesses off the ground.”

Beth writes to remind herself, and others, that in the emotional realm lies our shared humanity and that by reaching out and embracing our unique journey, we can find love, compassion and kindness for ourselves and each other.

“I am very grateful for all that life has taught me and I hope that in some small way, I may help others on their path by sharing what I have learned so far,” says Beth.

Beth will be reading a selection of her inspirational poems from her first publication, “Evolution: A Creative Journey to Inner Peace at a special “Pennies for Poems” event at Barley Mow Centre, Chiswick at 3pm on the 15th April.

Microloan is inviting everyone who would like to attend to make a donation of £5 on Beth’s website: and then send a confirmation email to: or phone: 0208 827 1691. Light refreshments will be provided.

This is the first of many exciting fundraising events in the lead up to the Guinness World Record attempt to create the longest line of pennies on July 9th and 10th at Chiswick Community School. They will need more than 4 million pennies, 1000 volunteers and 50 miles of sellotape to make the event possible. If you’d like to get involved, please let them know.

Beth’s book, “Evolution: A Creative Journey to Inner Peace” is available on
