Kiva Lending Team: Lawyers and Law Students Worldwide
We loan because...
We believe everyone deserves an equal opportunity in life.
Fairness and justice are important to lawyers and law students. We hate to see things that are unfair. It is unfair that some people are born with lots of opportunities while others are born into extreme poverty.
We lend to try to correct this economic unfairness/injustice. We lend so that people in poverty can have the opportunity to build a good life for themselves and their families.
Lawyers and Law Students from around the World uniting to stop poverty and to give people a 'step up' so that they can help themselves.
