We loan because...
It's a way to directly help people help themselves.

To all of those folks joining our team and wondering just what the heck this "Kiva" thing is, take a sec and click on the "About" button above; it'll give you an overview.

You can check out as much info as you like on their site, but what it comes down to is that Kiva is a "microlending" website which allows you to loan a small amount of money -- as little as $25 -- to struggling people to help them realize their dreams. You can loan to whoever you wish and be as anonymous as you'd like; the "team" part simply identifies you as part of our team so we can keep a running total of dollars invested. And, when your loan is repaid (I say "when", rather than "if' because their rate of return is pretty spectacular) you can choose to receive your investment back (yes, you get your wedding gift back!:)) or invest in a new loan, or even make it into a gift certificate! Pretty cool!

And,if you're concerned about having to manage your investment as it is repaid, you can opt to simply give us a Kiva gift certificate and we will invest it for you!

About us
We are a couple who have the great good fortune to be living a wonderful loving life together. We are about to get married and because we already have everything we need, we decided to forgo the traditional wedding gifts, and ask our friends and family to share our joy by investing with Kiva!
