Kiva Lending Team: Team Mekuria Marru
We loan because...
We feel it is more powerful to give someone the means to help themselves, then to just offer a handout.
This team is in the memory of the successful Ethiopian Business man, father, and friend who was the KIVA of his time by helping those around him who were in need. His family continues his legacy of giving to those less fortunate through the Mekuria Marru Scholarship Fund administered yearly by the Civil Engineering department of Addis Ababa University. The only one of its kind in Ethiopia.
