Kiva Lending Team: SGI
We loan because...
Each person can transform the inevitable sufferings of life into sources of growth and fulfillment and become a positive influence in their family and community.
We follow the teachings and philosophy of Nichiren Buddhism, which places the highest emphasis on the sanctity of life. Members seek, through their practice of Buddhism, to develop the ability to live with confidence, to create value in any circumstance and to contribute to the well-being of friends, family and community.
Our philosophy is rooted in the concept of “human revolution,” a process of inner transformation through Buddhist practice. It is a process that leads us to develop our character and to act not only for our personal fulfillment but also for the betterment of society.
