Kiva Lending Team: Young Jain Professionals (YJP)
We loan because...
We believe that small steps can make a big difference in changing the world.
The YJP is the proactive branch of Jainism followers in North America.
Jainism is a religion and a way of life. For thousands of years Jains have been practicing vegetarianism, yoga, meditation, and environmentalism. Jains have three core practices - Non Violence, Non absolutism and Non possessiveness. Jains believe in the existence of a soul - in each living being - which is eternal and divine. Jainism respects and honors all living beings and strives to bring peace and spirituality to our lives and those around us.
