We like to give back
So for each review received WE DONATE $5 to our fund at Kiva!
Kiva is an international non-profit, founded in 2005 and based in San Francisco, with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. They celebrate and support people looking to create a better future for themselves, their families and their communities.
By lending on Kiva, anyone can help a borrower start or grow a business, go to school, access clean energy or realize their potential. When a Kiva loan enables someone to grow a business and create opportunity for themselves, it creates opportunities for others as well. That ripple effect can shape the future for a family or an entire community. 100% of every dollar you lent through Kiva goes to funding loans. Kiva covers costs primarily through optional donations, as well as through support from grants and sponsors.
Each $5 donation is paid to Kiva and every quarter, myself and my team sit down and decide on the projects we want to support and allocate loan amounts to each project.
The great thing about Kiva is the loan is repaid over time, so we can re-invest funds in further projects, helping more and more people each year!
