We loan because...
We can make a difference and bring "meaning" to the classroom.

About us
In 2008, Alan invited Jessica Flannery, the co-founder of Kiva, to present at BLC. Jessica told a very touching story of why she wanted to help the working poor. Since that time, the Building Learning Communities’ team has loaned $10.385.00 to struggling entrepreneurs around the world. We would like to invite you to help grow our team and have even more impact.

Kiva is a non-profit website that allows you to lend as little as $25 to a specific low-income entrepreneurs around the world. You choose who to lend to - whether a baker in Afghanistan, a goat herder in Uganda, a farmer in Peru, a restaurateur in Cambodia or a tailor in Iraq - and as they repay the loan, you get your money back.

By joining our lending team, we can work together to alleviate poverty.
