Kiva Lending Team: ScaleStation.com
We loan because...
We get asked all the time - "How did you get involved in global health and emerging economic development". The question is hard to answer because it was never any one thing... it was 20 years of tiny steps and what feels like pointless work that eventually manifested in a clear vision, purpose and opportunity. People tell me that they wish they could do something to get involved... One of the best ways to start is to educate yourself... start to understand the conditions... the very context of the places you want to work. Learn the history, the politics - how the weather affects populations, when is the next election…etc.
Kiva has created an excellent option for anyone to play a role in the development of emerging economies and impact the health of communities. Our mission at ScaleStation Foundation is to improve global health, enhance access to quality education, and advance economic progress by utilizing the world’s best technologies to develop solutions for some of the world’s most formidable challenges. Kiva gives all of us the option to involve a wider audience in this important work. Kiva gives you the opportunity to manage small sums of money like a venture capitalist and donate to promising projects all over the globe. They provide great updates and as the loans are repaid you can utilize the money again to donate to the next worthy small enterprise. If you ever wanted to get involved I would encourage you to join Kiva and use it as a tool to make an impact and learn more about the parts of the world you are interested in.
Our team is made of people who believe in something greater than themselves, people that believe it is everyone's calling to try and leave the world a better, more equitable place.
