Transforming Lives

When jobs are created people survive on their own as their self-esteem and outlook on life improve dramatically. The income generated from their new businesses allows once poor families to begin to fulfill basic needs transforming one life at a time as each person escapes the tragedies of poverty.

This month, we’re spotlighting some of the amazing Kivans who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make Kiva possible.
