Kiva Lending Team: Nicholas Kristof/Half The Sky
We loan because...
We believe that empowering women with microloans changes oppression into opportunity and sparks generations of economic change for women worldwide.
Inspired by the book Half the Sky, written by Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn, our team is committed to helping curb culturally accepted abuse of women around the world. For more information, please visit www.halftheskyempoweringwomen.blogspot.com.
