Kiva Lending Team: Capital to the Coast 2011
We loan because...
We want to make a difference, and believe that micro-loans are a great way to empower people and reduce poverty worldwide.
In cycling from Ottawa to Halifax, nearly 1500 km, in ten days, we want to promote the work of micro-loans, and encourage and inspire people to lend through Kiva, and make a sustainable and measurable difference.
