We loan because:

For the first time ever and for as little as $25, Americans can lend to women entrepreneurs right in their own backyard. WE Invest, a program of The Women's Conference, already has been investing in women entrepreneurs in California, linking them to business training, mentoring and a support network to give them the tools to start or expand their own businesses. Now WE Invest is partnering with Kiva, the world's first person-to-person microlending website, created to empower individuals to lend directly to unique entrepreneurs around the globe. This new venture will allow us to empower thousands of women across America to become more financially independent, showing that every loan - even $25 - can make a real difference and change a life. JOIN US in empowering women - one woman at a time!

About us: Maria Shriver and The Women's Conference, continuing their efforts to promote the economic empowerment of women, are partnering with Kiva to bring microlending to the U.S.

As a Vietnam Vet, for years I have wished I had some way to help the people of Vietnam. Now I do. KIVA has provided me away not only to help Vietnam businessmen and women but people around the world and right here in the USA. The feeling every time I loan, is a rich...very good feeling. Try it, you'll like it._Green Earl
