Kiva Lending Team: One Grain of Rice
We loan because...
We love to share!
There is an old tale about a clever girl named Rani who saved her people from starvation by requesting, as her reward for a good deed, just one grain of rice doubled every day for thirty days. The raja thinks this is a foolish and paltry reward, but he soon learns the magnitude of this doubling. Rani's request of one grain of rice doubles into millions of grains of rice and all ends well.
