Our Kiva Team
Date Posted: 30 August 2021
4 years ago, I joined Kiva.
The idea behind this, is essentially to loan money to borrowers, usually in developing countries, who then repay the loan over a set term and then you are free to loan your money out again to someone else or withdraw it.
Over the last 4 years my initial $200(USD) loan has provided $675 to 27 different people in 19 countries.
There are options to support specific causes that are close to your heart such as women, education, sanitation, food, eco friendly etc. Or maybe you wish to support a certain country?
I feel very strongly the need to do something good for the world right now. Helping others, empathising, loving each other and showing we care is the only way we can possibly move forward.
Today I have taken the step of creating a team called Replenish Refill and kickstarted it with $200. When you join our team and help fund a loan, we can all keep track of our collective impact as a community.
If this is something that resonates with you, feel free to join our team via the link below.
Note: This is essentially a crowdfunding platform but it is a loan rather than a donation. The minimum amount you can lend is $25USD.100% of every dollar you lend on Kiva goes to funding loans. There is of course risk involved that sometimes loans aren't repaid or currency exchange means the $25 loan is not repaid in full and I would urge you to consider your circumstances, research and explore for yourself before committing at www.kiva.org
