Kiva Celebrates International Women's Day
Of the almost three billion adults worldwide who are unbanked or under-banked, most are women. Without access to education and resources to start a business, their potential and dreams are far too often wasted. This affects us all.
In honor of International Women's Day, Kiva will launch Kiva.org/women on March 7 to spotlight the power of women to create sustainable change when everyday people lend their support. As part of the kick-off for Kiva Women - partner Dermalogica is funding a $100,000 Kiva Women free trial program that will enable new users of Kiva Women to direct a $25 loan to the woman borrower of their choice.
For as long as funds last, you can direct a $25 loan to a woman borrower of your choice without fronting a penny - Dermalogica is covering the free trials.
Help start the ripple effect of change that creates financial independence through entrepreneurship for women worldwide.
