Kiva – Loans that change lives

We’ve just updated our Kiva account, adding some more loans. We urge all our photographers and customers to join us at Kiva, and help make a difference.

We also recommend you to watch the TED-video featuring Jessica Jackley, co-founder of Kiva.

What do you think of people in poverty? Maybe what Jessica Jackley once did: “they” need “our” help, in the form of a few coins in a jar. The co-founder of Kiva.org talks about how her attitude changed — and how her work with microloans has brought new power to people who live on a few dollars a day.

Cheers,

Linda :)

    A very powerful presentation for a worthy cause. Thanks for sharing that on your blog. Photographers might like to know that one way of contributing to Kiva is to become a “premium” member at Microstockgroup.com. Your premium member fee initially goes to Kiva. Regards, David.
