Kiva Lending Team: People Who Care About Women AND Men
We loan because...
We care about all people and believe that poor men should have the same access to micro loans as poor women.
We are concerned that many Microfinance Institutions (MFI's) make loans exclusively or primarily to women. Our fathers, brothers and sons need the same access to opportunity that women do so that they can take care of themselves and their families. To try to provide equal opportunities to men, we will loan money exclusively to needy men until the issue of gender equality is adequately addressed in the MFI community.
