We loan because...
We want to celebrate MJ.

About us
Welcome to our Kiva lending team dedicated to MJ. We created this team to celebrate MJ's life and her commitment to helping those who are less fortunate.

Introduced to Kiva by a friend of ours who works there, she loved the idea of an organization that empowers individuals with the opportunity to build the lives they dream of rather than simply handing out charity. She often gave gifts of Kiva loans, and we think this is a good way to honor her memory. We hope you will help us honor her memory but helping others build the businesses and lives they dream of.

Location: Washington, DC
