We loan because...
We celebrate Seniors With Attitude - who are willing to start something new or preserve tradition, support their families, and bring something positive to their world!

About us
Fun!
We love to see loans that highlight the efforts of seniors/elderly borrowers, who strive to improve their lives and of those around them.

We will *never* pressure team members to attribute loans to this team. Please feel free to post and share any loan to a Senior With Attitude that catches your attention. :-)

Each month, the SWA Team features one or two different Seniors With Attitude loans.

For the month of June, the Seniors With Attitude team's featured borrower is Arusbi, from Tajikistan.

60-year-old Arusbi is a proud farmer. Her loan will be used to plant this season's wheat crop. www.kiva.org/lend/1074198

The SWA Team believes in giving all Seniors With Attitude a better chance to have their Kiva loans get fully funded.

On the first Sunday after Repay Day (the 17th), SWA team members are invited to do a bit of Kiva math and fund a loan featuring a borrower who is a grandparent. On that Sunday each month, SWA team members post the loan link for the borrower that they have chosen to take to the 'SWA Sunday Brunch'.

Previous featured SWA borrowers:

May - Merabi started a taxi business in Georgia. www.kiva.org/lend/1052265
