We loan because...
Our beautiful son Baby Henry John Helms-North died shortly before he was born at 11am on the 18th July 2009.

About us
This fund was set up and is managed by Henry's parents, Rob and Katharine Helms-North. The fund was established with the help of Henry's family as well as friends of the family, colleagues, church members and other Kiva supporters. Like many, we have been wanting to do something to help those in need become self-sufficient but never felt we had the resources to take action. Baby Henry's death has taught us that if you mean to do something today, you should not put it off until tomorrow. Kiva and micro-finance provides us with an opportunity to do, on Baby Henry's behalf, something that is positive and can be looked after and nurtured by us. Thanks to the support of our lending team over 1250 people have been helped in the developing world with loans. Please feel free to join in and make a difference.
