Join the SIPC Kiva team today!
Kiva is a non-profit organization that brings together people from all over the world to give micro loans (usually $25) to individuals to help them grow and sustain themselves.
Take Pedro for example. Pedro supports his family by farming coffee beans and had two cows to plow his fields. One of the cows died and now Pedro can only produce half the coffee he could before the cow died and he is barely able to support his family.
Through a loan secured by Kiva, lenders each pitched in 25 dollars until Pedro had enough money to purchase a tractor which then allowed him to produce 10 times the amount of coffee he could before! Now he can pay back the loan and support his family better than ever! You can see a video about Pedro's story by clicking here.
