Kiva Lending Team: Friends of Benin
We loan because...
Benin is a country where about half of the population lives below the international poverty line of a dollar a day; loans through Kiva help the working poor of Benin have a fighting chance in pulling themselves out of poverty.
Like-minded individuals who care about the world and alleviating poverty, especially in places like Benin.
