Building online tools for a more equitable & sustainable future
I loan because:
I have traveled throughout Asia & Europe and found immense generosity everywhere. I was often frustrated in my attempts to "help" those disadvantaged by the current economic system and was looking for a constructive way return the generosity. Giving away money directly to people doesn't work and I am skeptical of large, western NGOs.
Kiva was a "no-brainer" for me. This is the only investment which guarantees a positive return! As of July 2019, I've loaned out more than $50,000 just by recycling the money!
I work on Open Source privacy tools and cryptocurrency projects.
I share what I know. I am vegan and I use the power I have to defend and empower those enslaved by this system - both human and non-human.
