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:
"Mohala i ka wai ka maka o ka pua."
In memory of my Mother and Father, Willempje of Rotterdam and Ioannis of Athens (and Queens, NYC) who made these loans possible.
Vote! Vote with your wallet, too, supporting businesses and farms who also deal in compassion, kindness, and tolerancel. We support Novica, Penzeys, and other caring businesses. ********
My background is in math and computer science, but later, I found a vocation to teach children with special needs. Life leads you on many paths. 道 We can always do a little good in this world, no matter how small our attempt. *******
My photo? To advocate replacing useless lawns with sustainable agriculture--my homegrown fruits and veggies. Even shady areas can produce some edibles or feed Nature. Fruition: The positive outcomes we nurture on Kiva. Mahalo to my Kiva ohana (family). You are all wonderful and give us hope for the future! :-)
