Partnership with Kiva – The Joys in Helping
In helping others rather than seeking our own gain, we find great happiness for real joy is found not in being served, but in choosing to serve. As I joined Kiva, I am not only helping small-scale entrepreneurs to finance his/her business endeavor, I also create a ripple effect of kindness because as this entrepreneur progress he/she creates positive impact on his/her society – improve lives of others. Another reason I joined Kiva it’s because I believe in fair access to affordable capital and help people achieve their dreams.
Join Kiva today and help people create opportunity for themselves and for others.
