We loan because...
It's a great way to share what we have with others and know that we're making a real and lasting difference.

About us
Aunt Cindy started the team by giving Kiva gift certificates to her children, nieces and nephews, ages 5 to 23 for Chanukah in 2009 and challenging them to invest, then re-invest and add to their portfolios when the loans are paid back. Adults and family members are invited to join the fun by making their own investments and inviting THEIR extended families. Someday we might be the world :-)

Location: Many cities across the US
