Kiva Lending Team: Daanam Hindu Charity
We loan because...
The greatest dharma (duty) is to help those who need it. The name of the group is daanam because it is a Sanskrit word that describes the virtue of generosity and charity.
Individuals who realize the value of karma and good works in their lives. The greatest kindness that one can offer another is to help someone stand and succeed on their own.
"That gift (daanam) which is given, in a fit time and place, to a worthy person, from where we expect nothing in return, is held to be saattwic (pure)."
- Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 17, Verse 20
