Kiva Lending Team: 'My Family and Other Animals'
We loan because...
We believe in demonstrating fidelity to our ideals and communion with our fellow humans.
We are a group of friends & family with the simple aim of helping those less advantaged to help themselves. We believe the most effective way to achieve this is through bypassing commercial banking and hegemonic institutions; to lend directly to people in the developing world according to their own priorities & goals.
Our group name is taken from the title of a book by Gerald Durrell; A humorous account of his childhood growing up on the Greek island of Corfu in the 1930's. He was a renowned naturalist, author, pioneering conservationist, and a relation of our team captain & family.
