I loan because:
I am exploring micro loan programs like these because I have spent my entire professional career in workforce and economic development here in the United States. I have seen firsthand how teams of people can work together to create impact locally and even regionally, serving thousands of individuals. However, there is still much that needs to be done globally. “A rising tide lifts all boats” can be true in multiple ways, not just through traditional means; we must get creative to help individuals and families throughout the world.
As I explore Kiva, I will be curious how it develops. I imagine due to my background, my loans will grow over time and lean towards employment opportunities and sustainable business and economic development that will not adversely impact the environment in the developing communities my the loans will most likely target.
I already joined a team for Villanova University, my alma mater, and I am curious about others. I'm sure there must be interesting teams here in the San Francisco Bay Area to join. If your interests align with what I describe, please feel free to message me!
