We loan because...
Ippy inspired us to do so and we believe, like she does, that individual contributions can change the world.

About us
We are friends and fans of Jean Scates, known as "Ippy" to her grandson. In recognition of her 60th birthday, we’re making Kiva loans to honor her lifelong commitment to philanthropy.
