Church and Society NUMC Kiva Loans
In 2007, Church and Society members and members of the congregation began making loans to people all over the world through a website called "Kiva."
Kiva's mission is to connect people through lending for the sake of alleviating poverty.
Kiva empowers individuals and groups to lend to entrepreneurs across the globe. By combining microfinance with the internet, Kiva is creating a global community of people connected through lending.
With the beginning amount of $125.00 and by relending the money as it is payed back, we have been able to make 95 loans, averaging $25.00 each. As of August 28th, 2012, we have loaned over $2,375.00.
We presently have $446.58 as available credit to loan. We have $262.50 in outstanding loans to be repaid.
