Kiva Lending Team: LOTUS: Lend Out To Uplift Self-sufficiency
We loan because...
We care about people striving to enhance their self-sufficiency and wish to support their entrepreneurial endeavors. It just takes one small step by each of us lending on Kiva. Together we can make it easier for hard working people to get the much-needed capital to sustain and grow their business. We feel blessed to be able to support the aspirations of so many loan recipients who persevere tenaciously for a better quality of life with dignity. Thanks to Kiva.org, we can now connect together in this common cause.
We have a vision to change lives in novel ways. Our team's origin is rooted in a Kiva Card (gift certificate), an inspiring talk by Kiva Fellow, Jessica Heinzelman (KF5) about Kiva micro-lending, and an amiable team ambience nurtured by Kiva Fellows, Kiva Editor & Translators, artists, writers, entrepreneurs, workers, retired people, families, parent + kid(s), students, teachers, and professionals. Our diversity & portfolio enable our discovery of social values inherent in the Kiva micro-lending ecosystem. Frequent & occasional lenders are free to choose who to lend to, how much and when, beyond the realm of lending targets and team statistics. Experienced members are gratified to enhance our grasp of nuances in lending. We wish to work with volunteers in the team, Kiva Friends and our supporters to engage in activities that promote Kiva. Our journey to strengthen and grow the Kiva ecosystem has room for more.
