With the motto, “loans that change lives,” Kiva.org has made it possible for entrepreneurs across the world to gain access to affordable loans at reasonable borrowing rates. At the forefront of the crowdfunding movement, Kiva makes the process simple for both borrowers and lenders. By working through local partners to distribute loans, and repayment rates clearly listed on the website, lenders have clear knowledge of who their loan is going to, how it is getting to them, and when it will be paid back.
With a penchant and passion for entrepreneurship, we are excited to say that we have become active Kiva lenders! We believe the best part about Kiva is the ability for us to know who we are supporting—it’s suddenly a new connection, a new opportunity, and a new bridge that we are able to build across the world, right from our computer screen.
