The micro lending programs we see in the United States make simple request… Choose a place to put a little cash into their program, maybe see the business that will use the loan and watch the results.
Can we do more?
We’re watching videos from a group of Kiva volunteers today. Kiva Fellows is a program that sends volunteers out to places where the loans are made. The videos are a wide range of productions.. so we’re just including a playlist here to sample some from their YouTube channel.
After watch a few, you get a feeling for how peoples lives are changed and how they remain self reliant in some tough economic situations.
We’re guessing that the lives of the Fellows benefit too.
Kiva is one of the best known micro lending organizations. They come up first in the research we did. We don’t endorse Kiva or any other group.
