Karen for KIVA

Join team 'Karen for Kiva' to celebrate Karen's life and memory on her eight anniversary...............................

KIVA is non-profit organization that connects people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of micro finance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.

This October, Kiva celebrates its 6th anniversary. Millions have been empowered through loans from strangers. Kiva brings together people from around the world who have resources and are ready to share them with people who have skill and need someone to give them an opportunity, a helping hand and a chance to better their lives.

Kiva is one of the not-for-profit organizations that is transparent and reports in detail on each loan you finance. 

This month, team 'Karen for Kiva' has provided Fatullo from Tajikistan a loan. Fatullo is a baker and needed a small loan to buy flour to make flat bread. Fatullo works very hard and is the only baker on his street. Fatullo like many other beneficiaries is lucky to get this chance. Thanks to Kiva for connecting Fatullo and many generous people around the world.
