Vine Team Raises Support for Kiva

Congratulations to the The Vine Team for raising funds in support of Kiva – a non-profit organization that provides small loans to people around the world. read more…

Often only a relatively small amount of money stands in the way of Kiva borrowers and their dreams. Whether it’s a Kenyan farmer who needs $500 in order to double her grain production, or a young Bolivian woman who lacks the $1,500 tuition for nursing school, Kiva lenders provide a hand up to these and countless other borrowers. The exciting part is that when the loan is paid back Vine can re-lend the funds to another individual. We are proud to have made 18 separate loans to individuals in countries such as Ecuador, Columbia and Uganda. Our favourite loan has been to a young lady in Nicaragua who is studying to be an Accountant. Please visit the www.kiva.org to learn more.
