Kiva Lending Team: Ty's Tzedakah Team
We loan because...
My parshah for my Bar Mitzvah talks about women's rights. Anybody can do anything and it doesn’t matter if you are ‘different’. We are ALL created equal. Inside everyone is just a regular human being with a beautiful soul just like you and me, but sometimes we don’t take the time to see it and recognize them for who they are. The idea of “All people are created equally” is important and we should respect it. In Judaism we say we are all created B’tzelem Eloheim in God’s image, we are all Godly.
The torah teaches us that The highest degree of charity is he who strengthens the hand of his poor fellow Jew and gives him a gift or [an interest-free] loan.
We will not limit our loans to Jews but to anyone who needs our help to succeed on their own.
We donate to those who might have a disadvantage some how in society. We have selected groups or individuals of those who need additional support and love to give them the hope to succeed in life.

Rosa received a loan from Robin to buy a commercial griddle for selling pupusas and to buy a refrigerator to keep the ingredients for her foods fresh.
