We loan because...
We want to help poor people out of poverty.

About us
This Kiva Team was inspired by edX/MITx Course "The Challenges of Global Poverty" and its accompanying book Poor Economics, written by our professors Esther Duflo and Abhijit Vinayak Banerjee. Please join if you are a student of this course, a student of one the original MIT classes, or just inspired by the book.

We try to find interesting reads about what works and what doesn't, discuss it here and try to lend accordingly.
