We loan because...
"We make a living by what we get, we make a life by what we give." - Winston Churchill

About us
Sam and Ellie were born in Oct 2009 and our project goal - "total loan impact" of $250,000.00 - was set. A portion of everything our family makes goes to this project. We include the kiddo's on every loan. At some point the portfolio will be entirely turned over to the kids to manage. Our hope ... Kiva can help teach our kids global responsibility and the importance of giving. In doing so, help them also learn ... the world is not too big that they can't make a lasting and meaningful difference to the lives of many.
