Glenn's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped me to pay for the development of a new and improved door security device.

Glenn's story

As a dump truck driver, I can lift and dump heavy loads at the push of a button. This inspired me to come up with a device that can help secure a door closed at the push of a button for the benefit of the user. I'm a man of great passion and vision I can most often look at one thing and find myself visualizing a number of different services that it may be capable of providing. I have always been on the creative side of things. I actually ran a non-profit phone calling service for senior citizens called the Tell-A-Peer Foundation out of my home - a phone calling service where seniors checked on seniors. I also had buses to assist seniors with transportation needs. My biggest problem then was that I lacked knowledge about grant writing and things of that nature and ran the program out of pocket. Learning from that venture, I now know how to reach out to companies like Kiva for assistance in the further pursuit of my goal to make life easier and better for society at large.
