Are you a Kiva lender yet? NO? Then this is your lucky day.
Kiva is an organization that aims to combat poverty by enabling people to help themselves. Kiva lenders are ordinary people like you and me who make small loans to borrowers around the worlds to give them that small boost to get them over whatever hump life may have decided to throw their way.
From the Kiva website:
Often only a relatively small amount of money stands in the way of Kiva borrowers and their dreams. Whether it’s a Kenyan farmer who needs $500 in order to double her grain production, or a young Bolivian woman who lacks the $1,500 tuition for nursing school, Kiva lenders provide a hand up to these and countless other borrowers.
You can choose from a list of borrowers on the website who you would like to extend the loan to. No matter where or who you choose, you will be making a difference in someone’s life and the best thing about it is, you can do it over and over again!
If you sign up now as a new lender, you can give out a loan for $25 just to try out how it all works. This matching initiative is from other Kiva lenders who have experienced how satisfying and rewarding it is to help someone else get a leg up. Check out Kiva now and join for Free!
