Dollars for Dreams
We believe we can make a difference by helping people move from poverty to self-sufficiency through micro lending, thus breaking the cycle of generational poverty.
We send microloans to people all over the world who do not have access to traditional bank loans through the online organization kiva.org. Loan recipients start or grow a business, grow crops, pursue education, fix their homes, bring resources to their communities, and more. Students choose loan recipients at meetings. As of May 2021, we have loaned $29,275 to 185 recipients in 43 different countries. Loan recipients repay their loans and we reloan the money, no need to fundraise.
