Kiva Lending Team: Friends of Bob Harris
We loan because...
After stumbling into a job as a luxury travel writer, I saw so much poverty that I decided to turn those paychecks into Kiva loans. Then I visited a bunch of clients, who were amazing, and I've written a book about it called "The International Bank of Bob" (Walker/Bloomsbury, March 5, 2013).
I hope the book will get more people to feel a greater understanding of Kiva, a better appreciation of the role of microfinance, and most of all, more connected to the rest of the world.
People who realize that if we switched places with the recipients, they'd loan to us just as happily. So, fair's fair.
