Kiva Lending Team: Let's Lend $40,000
We loan because...
Because we want to increase peace and understanding in the world we all share.
Our goal is to reach loans totalling $40,000.
This team was started on October 18, 2008.
This is a group of total strangers who all want to help out OTHER total strangers.
Many of us have been there from the beginning, when our total loans were around $5000. It is amazing and wonderful how fast we've been able to grow.
Every one of our transactions connects people around the world who want what we all want from life -to have the dignity that comes from honest labor, to put food on the table, to see our children grow up healthy and strong, and help the next generation have more opportunities than we ourselves had.
Our first goal was $10,000. When we reached that we set our sights on $20,000.
Now that we have hit $20,000, we are going for $40,000 in loans.
