Robert and I would like to invite you to join out lending team, Aspen Trash, at www.kiva.org a non-profit website that allows you to lend as little as $25 to a specific low-income entrepreneur across the globe. You choose who to lend to - whether a baker in Afghanistan, a goat herder in Uganda, a farmer in Peru, a restaurateur in Cambodia, or a tailor in Iraq - and as they repay the loan, you get your money back.
If you join our lending team, we can work together to alleviate poverty. Once you're a part of the team, you can choose to have a future loan on Kiva "count" towards our team's impact. The loan is still yours, and repayments still come to you - but you can also choose to have the loan show up in our team's collective portfolio, so our team's overall impact will grow.
Kiva Shows You Where Your Money Goes: Unlike donations which usually go into general funds, Kiva loans show you exactly WHO your money goes to, WHAT they are doing with it, and HOW you are making a difference. Best part? It’s a loan, not a donation. We invite you to make a small loan and make a big difference!
