Kiva Lender Ross
Palo Alto, CA, United States
Co-founder of Socialtext
I loan because:
Entrepreneurs can change the world. When people connect through great services like Kiva, great things happen.
I started my career in the non-profit sector with the US-Baltic Foundation, providing educational and technical aid. My cousin works in microfinance in Benin. It is truly amazing how effective it can be.
I am an entrepreneur that most recently co-founded Socialtext. We make wiki software like what powers Wikipedia. "Wiki Wiki" means "very quick" in Hawaiian and wikis are wonderfuly simple tools for collaboration.
Socialtext often donates wikis in-kind to non-profit organizations and by default provide a 50% discount to them.
