We believe that 10% can change the World
Our vision is to change the way the world invests in property. Our goal is to help people make Smarter Property Investment Decisions. Our purpose is to do well by doing good.
MID’s™ employees are driven by a common aspiration to change the world, for the better. We want to produce ground breaking investment tools and calculators, such as our patent pending MID investment property analysis application, which will help every property investor with achieving financial freedom.
We wanted to raise money and build awareness for Social Enterprises and not-for-profits, while at the same time, having some fun along the way.
Our values are based on a 10% model that dedicates 10% of company's net profits to our Community Partner, Opportunity International Australia, and 10% of our products are free to non-profits and charitable funds.

Opportunity International, making a lasting difference...
MID is a Partner to Opportunity International Australia, a non-profit organisation that uses finance and development economics to develop a sustainable solution to poverty. What this means is that when you donate to MID, 10% of our net profits goes to Opportunity International.
Rather than a hand-out, Opportunity International provide people living in poverty with a small loan (microfinance) to help them start or grow their own small business. This enables them to earn a regular income so they no longer have to struggle to afford food, clean water, proper shelter or an education for their children.
With more than 35 years’ experience working with the poor, Opportunity International Australia is a leading provider and pioneer of microfinance and support services. Part of the global Opportunity International Network (with support partners in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada and Germany), Opportunity International currently provides a way out of poverty for more than 2.8 million people in 25 developing countries around the world.
Opportunity International Australia currently focuses its work in three countries – India, Indonesia and the Philippines, serving more than 2 million people with microfinance and community development programs. You can join us as we work to help millions more leave poverty behind for good.
So what has been the impact of all the monies raised from MID’s 10% can change the world program?
So where has all the money gone to and what were the impact of your generosity? One of the things that we love about Opportunity International is the transparency and accountability of the organization.
