Kiva Lending Team: Give Green - Environmental Loans
We loan because...
We want the world to be a better place.
Made of individual kiva lenders who are concerned about the environmental impacts of their loans. This is a forum to notify each other of environmentally sustainable loans that are needing funding. Sustainable development projects include recycling, solar, re-use, organic agriculture, health, etc.
We support enterprises that care about the earth and all of its inhabitants. We have no religious, racial or political affiliations of any kind. We want to encourage sustainable enterprises that recycle, reuse, repurpose and use environmentally sound agricultural and manufacturing practices.
Many of us would like Kiva to develop environmental standards or criteria for their lending practices to prevent environmental impacts that would increase poverty for future generations.
Many people want to have a green portfolio, or at least a green component.
Won't you join us in creating true sustainability that includes a healthy environment?
