Kiva Lending Team: New Aid
We loan because...
it gives those who are less fortunate a chance to make a real life that is sustainable, and one for which they can feel proud.
Our team includes anyone and everyone who is interested in this new form of international development aid. As statistics have proven, conventional aid and charitable donations, while meaningful, have not been enough to rid of poverty, and have often been seen as contributing factors to the cycle of poverty. The solution lies in creating opportunity for those less fortunate to make a life through business and entrepreneurial venture. As the old proverb says, 'give a man a fish, he eats for a day; teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime.' This group is about creating and sustaining life. It is about providing opportunity to all of humanity, because we all deserve a fair chance at this one chance we are all given at life.
