Micro Lending

Our kids introduced us to a very creative way of supporting poor people in third world countries through microlending via the Internet.

As a result, we are now international financiers (in a very small way – athough it only takes a small amount to make a big difference). We have provided a portfolio of loans (from $25 upwards) to local entrepreneurs in developing countries and we plan to add more funding over time.

Here are the people whom we curently fund.

We like this approach because it is a way of helping the poor. It is also a very creative use of internet technology, and Kiva is a reputable orgnisation.
