Kiva Lending Team: Neurodiversity is natural
We loan because...
We believe that neurodiversity is natural and we believe that developmental disability and poverty must no longer be synonymous anywhere in the world.
This team is dedicated to people with developmental and neuro diversities who are living in poverty across the world. Even (or maybe especially in) 'developed' countries like Canada, US, and UK people with Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities are marginalized by social constructs into institutions or a lifetime of poverty with little or no opportunities to improve their situations or make socially valued contributions.
We would like to provide student loans, loans for businesses, and loans for other innovative ideas that will bring change to individuals and communities.
