We loan because...
We want to honor Jeff's commitment to Kiva and to helping people realize their dreams.

About us
Jeff Goldie and his wife Sandi began supporting entrepreneurs via Kiva loans in 2007, and Jeff became a volunteer translator in 2011. One of his team leaders described him as "...a superstar. Professional, incredibly smart, and a high-volume translator.". Jeff was able to do a final Kiva translation three weeks before he died of brain cancer on March 17, 2016, bringing his total translations to 2,816 loans. Sandi created this team to further Jeff's contribution to an organization he loved.
