Kiva Loans

Kiva is an on-line lending platform connecting lenders to entrepreneurs across the globe. Kiva means "unity" in Swahili. These are "loans" that are paid back. This is a self-sustaining ministry. Our team meets quarterly to allocate these loans. Visit their website KIVA.

The KIVA loan team (Thank you Jackie, Sharon, Charlie) loaned a total of $ 300.00 to five people from five different countries. Their pictures and stories are told here.  The Team is scheduled to meet again in October. We are starting with a balance of $57.00, they are hoping our repayments will allow us to loan another $ 300.00 or more the next time we meet in October.
