About us
From 2007 to 2012, the Mars Hill community invested $1.2 million dollars to support the efforts of Turame Community Finance in Burundi, Africa. Now we are continuing our involvement with Turame in an even more hands-on-way - by becoming microfinance lenders.

How to get involved:
1. Click the join team button to the left [if you are new to Kiva you will need to create an account].

2. Choose a Borrower: Check out the current Turame loans by scrolling down at this link: [bit.ly/pGU0sd] If there are no new loans, check back in as Turame posts new loans twice a month.

3. Make a Loan:

4. Get Repaid: Over the course of 6 months your loan will get repaid to you in the form of Kiva credit. [This is a loan, not a donation]

5. Repeat. You can take the money and put it back in your pocket or make a loan to another group.

Thanks for helping support Turame Community Finance in providing loans to those living in one of the poorest countries on the planet.
