Kiva Lending Team: Using Business to Make a Difference
We loan because...
We loan because we want to help in the fight against poverty. We feel that poverty is an overwhelmingly large problem, and as such needs an overwhelmingly large solution. We leverage the power of "business" as we feel this is one of the largest potential long-term solutions in the fight against poverty.
By donating part (or all) of one's profits to Kiva, a business can utilize its momentum to cause change. As the loans are paid back, the business can utilize the funds to grow the institution. In this sense, the business is simply giving up their "Time Value of Money" and basically delaying profits by the length of the repayment schedule. In the meantime, these funds are used to fight poverty and make a difference.
The greater the business succeeds, the more lives it will affect. Greater success = greater contributions.
In this fashion, we hope to use business as a lever to make a difference in the fight against poverty.
Young, energetic, endlessly hopeful, smart, and a bit naive with a healthy dose of humility.
