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!

About us
We are friends of Leo Eaton and his dear wife Jeri Eaton. Like them, we believe that every person has inherent dignity and value. We want to follow their model, and help folks who are working to build something positive in their community receive the funding needed to reach their goals. We are blessed with resources and are willing to share them. Just like Jeri. Please join us in our efforts through Kiva.org.

Location: We are based in the USA and serve clients around the world
