We loan because...
This team has been created in memory of Raj Shahani who passed away in March 2010 at the tender age of 30. Raj was an active and enthusiastic Kiva lender. He had felt Kiva offered the unique opportunity to help entrepreneurs build their businesses and better their lives. We lend because we wish to continue his work. Raj's spirit will live on by our helping those in need.

About us
Our team is made up of friends and family members of Raj whose relentless pursuit to help others is our inspiration. Together as a team, we can and will make a difference in the world.
