Task: Make a Micro-Loan to create opportunity for disadvantaged people around the world
Cost: $-$$$ (But it'll get paid back!)
Kiva is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 and based in San Francisco, with a mission to connect people through lending to ALLEVIATE POVERTY INTERNATIONALLY . We celebrate and support people looking to create a better future for themselves, their families and their communities. By lending as little as $25 on Kiva, anyone can help a borrower start or grow a business, go to school, access clean energy or realize their potential. For some, it’s a matter of survival, for others it’s the fuel for a life-long ambition. 100% of every dollar you lend on Kiva goes to funding loans. Kiva covers costs primarily through optional donations, as well as through support from grants and sponsors.
