If you’ve been following our blog for a while, you know that we love Kiva. As small business owners, we appreciate having the opportunity to help other small business owners, especially those in developing countries who are dealing with far greater challenges than us.
Exciting news…we have passed the halfway point in our goal to help at least one small business owner in every country that has partnered with Kiva.
Since 2007, we have been involved with Kiva, a non-profit dedicated to fighting global poverty by facilitating microloans for small business owners, most of whom live in developing countries. Being owners of a small, local business, we like being able to help others who have small businesses in their own communities, especially those who are at a socioeconomic disadvantage.
As a small business, we like helping other small business owners to succeed, especially those who face adversity. It’s why we have been involved in funding microloans through Kiva. Our final Kiva loan for 2014 goes to Hortencio in Mozambique, a country in eastern Africa, where the average annual income is just under $1,400.
