We loan because...
We want to make a difference in the lives of those in need.

About us
We are a team of Twin Cities residents concerned about world poverty. We host events around the city to raise money for Kiva loans, which we use to make new loans once the money is returned. We hope, as a community, to improve the plight of the impoverished by using microlending.
