KIVA Empower a Small Business Entrepreneur

Updated on January 30, 2018

Helping Around the World

A community of lenders and givers!

Empower A Small Business Entrepreneur

Kiva is a safe reputable organization that partners people together to help others all over the world!

When the economy declined in the USA it had a worldwide ripple effect! I don’t know anyone who was not impacted in some way or another. Whoever would have thought ten years ago we would be here? Moving forward we have made some substantial improvements. Consumers are once again able to spend generously. This is what helps the economy. Yes, we are finally now turning things around and on moving forward... However, there are still so many going through all around the world!

The news is full of stories of earthquakes, floods, hurricanes typhoons, tsunamis and more. Let us not forget the growing volume of horrific crimes as well as a multiplicity of foreign and domestic terrorists attacks. This all further impacts everyone worldwide as well. Business as usual is not easy for everyone. Kiva manages to reach a diverse number of people who are in need of assistance to build, start and replenish their small businesses.

You would be simply amazed how a very small loan of a few dollars can tremendously help. Kiva brings people together to help empower Small Business Entrepreneurs. They are given the opportunity to start and finance a business. The funds they receive through Kiva helps them to acquire the necessary resources they need.

If you are truly interested in making a difference in the lives of others or you are a giver and want to reach out and help someone it is still possible to do so. You have the opportunity to change someone’s life through Kiva's wonderful lending program.

Kiva was founded by Matt Flannery and Jessica Jackley. They took an interesting trip to Africa. As they were returning from Africa they wondered how could they really help? Well, they started Kiva by making (7) seven small micro loans. They have further expanded and now they have reached out all over the world. Thousands have been helped and more are still being helped. It is simply amazing!

Giving is the way to go and Kiva provides an excellent source to do just that. I would like to share this wonderful website with anyone who is interested? Check it out for yourself. Kiva is a community of lenders and givers! It is an excellent place to help others all year around. Working together as a team you can help so many others because every little bit counts! I recommend even if you don’t join to check it out! Kiva is a wonderful website that “helps to alleviate poverty!” No matter what is going on there is always someone else that is doing worst than you. This gives you the opportunity to still "reach out" and help improve and touch the lives of others.

Kiva is a wonderful network of people who have gotten together to help people all over the world. “You are able choose who you want to lend to. You can do it as an individual or you can join a group of lenders. Just take the time to read the bio's of a few possible candidates. They are from all walks of life. Whether a baker in Afghanistan, a goat herder in Uganda, a farmer in Peru, a restaurateur in Cambodia, a fisherman in Vietnam, or a tailor in Iraq, or even a small business owner in America you can help immensely. No need to worry because as they repay their loan, you get your money back. You can in turn simply reinvest by lending to someone else... It's a powerful and sustainable way to really empower someone now and encourage them to help lift themselves out of poverty.”

Through Kiva you can help encourage and empower many different Small Business Entrepreneurs from all over the world. A regular online report is readily accessible as to their progress. A bio of what their business is all about is provided. What they are doing, who they are, how they are progressing and where they live and work. You can loan or give a gift certificate. You are provided with a data-rich transparent lending platform. You can browse and select as many or as few you would like to help. A micro loan is disbursed through Kiva’s many field representatives. No need for concern? You can readily see how your funds are used to help. Entrepreneurs are available from a vast number of countries across the globe for you to select from. It is all handled fastidiously and in a professional manner. Kiva is a reputable, responsible genuine organization. After the loan is repaid, you can request a refund, relend or donate your monies back to Kiva. It is a wonderful rewarding experience!

“Kiva’s mission is to connect people through lending for the sake of alleviating poverty.” Kiva is the world's first person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend to unique entrepreneurs around the globe.” For more information visit them at

      I've never heard of Kiva before, but it sounds like a nice alternative to help out others less fortunate around the world. It also sounds a lot more beneficial in the long run, because when businesses start to recover, so to will the economy in general. Great read!

      I'm sure that if you are behind it sister, it is a worthy cause. We always want to know where our money goes so every penny is used to glorify the Lord Jesus. Thank you for giving us another opportunity to sow seed of Christian faith. Loveya.
