We loan because...
Jeri was a wonderful friend and inspiration to many. With her best pal and spouse Leo, she delighted in travel, nature, building community, and being helpful. She lived and died with beauty and grace. She is alive in spirit within the hearts of those who knew and loved her, and those who knew and loved her want to keep her helpful nature at work in the needful places of this world. Every Kiva loan for the Friends of Jeri team will bring opportunity and hope for a better life for loan recipients. And, when a loan is repaid, the funds can be loaned again to help another worthy individual or group. Although we hope the loans are focused on improving the health and viability of women-led businesses and coops, the choice of amount to loan, loan location and loan recipient is up to you, the benefactor. Thank you for your participation!
