We loan because...
we want to help women around the world help themselves.

About us
We are a group of friends who met through a common love of stitching (cross stitching, sampler work, etc.) We are choosing to make loans through Kiva to honor each other and all those around the world who love or make their living through needlework.

Location: Mostly New Jersey, US
