Love making a difference with Kiva? Your donations keep us running.
Thank you for the impact you’ve made this year! Together we’ve funded more than 170,000 loans and
raised more than $120 million for financially excluded people around the world. It costs us more
than $3 to facilitate each $25 loan, and we rely on optional donations from individuals like you to
cover our costs.

I loan because:
I participate in Kiva because I believe that micro loans are an effective way to improve the quality of people's lives. I have been participating in different micro loan programs for years before joining Kiva, and I'm glad that there is a place like Kiva to facilitate something so beneficial to developing countries.
I have been involved with small business consulting for a long time. I've participated in a lot of fantastic ventures, mostly in Canada and the USA, so for the most part, I knows what works and what doesn't when it comes to micro-finances and small business funding.
My interests include Kung Fu, Royal Canadian Armed Forces, film, books, music, Christian missions work, small business, cars, city planning, art, photography, and probably a bunch of other stuff as well. :)
