Kindness and community are integral values in my life. That’s why I dedicate this section of Lighthouse’s website to support my philanthropic initiatives and causes.
All our contributions and efforts can make a difference to build strong, thriving communities — right in our backyards or further afield. That, along with the fact that I’m an entrepreneur to my core is why Lighthouse has formed a Kiva Lending Team to support business owners globally.
Lending teams are self-organized groups where members can connect with one another and rally around shared lending goals designed to alleviate poverty. 100% of every dollar you lend on Kiva goes directly towards funding loans; Kiva does not take a cut nor do they charge interest to their Field Partners, who administer the loans.
Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world. From Honduras to Sierra Leone, the United States to Bolivia here is a peek at the entrepreneurs we have supported through Lighthouse’s lending team. Will you join us?
