We loan because...
My family and I are grateful to have more than we need. In lieu of a present or gift, I ask that you consider a small gesture to create opportunities for people from less fortunate circumstances.

To make a team loan, first click the "join" button on the right, then (if you're not already a member) sign up to Kiva. Once signed in, click the link to "loans" listed above to see where the team has loaned so far, or by clicking the "lend" tab at the very top you can browse to find the entrepreneur whose venture speaks to you. Or, if you prefer, give a Kiva gift certificate (available under "kiva gifts" up top), and I would be pleased to select an entrepreneur on your behalf.
With your support I would be grateful to help create a lasting impact as a result of my 60th birthday celebration.
