Kiva Lending Team: 1
We loan because...
All of us have our own bills.
Either we're in college paying off tuition, books, rent, bills, groceries, and loading money into the retail business....
Or we're a little wiser, out of college, own a home, have a job or career, paying a mortgage, bills, and paying for our children's needs....
These expenses simply do not compare to the needs of others around the world.
What we selfishly spend on clothes out of "want" rather than need; the money we spend on going out to eat; even the few dollars we waste by leaving the lights on while we're not using them, mean nothing to others around the world who barely have enough money to cover necessities.
People who are less fortunate than we are can barely afford clothes they NEED, food and shelter they NEED, and materials and supplies to build their homes or to support their kids.
...most of these people can't afford a vehicle, and it is their ultimate goal to someday own one...
The money we spend each day means nothing knowing that there are people out there that are less fortunate and are able to be helped; but by who? US. We can help.
My team is called "1". One stands for one common interest, one common goal: to help others.
Friends and relatives who know our dollar can be better spent on someone else, in some other place, in some better way.
