If you havent already heard of it, Kiva is an amazing non-profit charity website that allows you to lend as little as $25 to a specific low-income entrepreneur across the globe. You choose who to lend to – whether a baker in Afghanistan, a goat herder in Uganda, a farmer in Peru, a restaurateur in Cambodia, or a tailor in Iraq – and as they repay the loan, you get your money back.
Once you’ve got your money back you can withdraw it or simply lend it again. At Eseyo we are currently funding three projects throughout the World, and when this load is returned to us we will re-loan it to another project.
I want to recruit you to my lending team, Eseyo and Friends, on Kiva, a non-profit website. If you join my lending team, we can work together to alleviate poverty. Once you’re a part of the team, you can choose to have a future loan on Kiva “count” towards our team’s impact. The loan is still yours, and repayments still come to you – but you can also choose to have the loan show up in our team’s collective portfolio, so our team’s overall impact will grow!
