Kiva Lending Team: HeartPath
We loan because...
As an aid worker in Africa, I saw the power of micro-lending first hand. I wish I could describe the gratitude on the faces of those receiving loans... my heart warms just recalling their smiles and laughter.
The women and men who receive these loans are not only providing for themselves and their families, but whole villages are being transformed by the power of opportunity---the opportunity to receive a small loan to fund their creative/business endeavors.
As a counselor and coach, I also know that one of the best ways to "restart your heart" is to give back and thereby, to become part of something larger than yourself.
