Vancouver, BC, Canada
I loan because:
- Every day, people around the world living on less than $1 a day combine creativity, ingenuity and hard work to make ends meet. To support these people and their families, Microfinance institutions work to improve access to information, technology and capital for microloans in the poorest regions of the world. Kiva creates a community of online advocates and funders, with the ultimate goal of making measurable progress to enable the poor, especially the poorest, to create a world without poverty. I've set up a fundraising page for this effort, and am working to gather support and awareness to create economic opportunities for people living in poverty.
About me:
- In Vancouver, Canada a loan between $250,000 to $375,000 dollars allows a Family to enjoy a Home and have pride of ownership. This is called a Mortgage. In Africa, Asia, South America and Mexico, a loan of $250 to $375 dollars allows a Family to enjoy Shelter, Food, Water, Education, Health and pride of being able to support your family. This is called Microfinancing. Even more, a loan of $2,500 dollars can enable a family to build a house and give them a start to a better life. Our purpose is to help poor families find their treasure: Shelter and income to support themselves. We want to do this not by raising money directly but buy seeking the help of people with time, willingness to learn and a genuine desire to help one family at a time. One person with desire has more potential than thousands of dollars and the ability to help hundreds of families. Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. Chinese Proverb.
