Kiva - "Team" Film

Kiva! You want to make a difference? You can. Don't know what to do with that birthday card money? You will.

Twenty-five dollars: loan it! It's the best feeling and... you pretty much get it all back.

Kiva changes lives - The lives of people in Third World countries.
Loans = Life.
A better one. Grant a loan through the Kiva organization
and you will change a life.

I want to invite you to join my lending team, FILM, on Kiva, a non-profit website that allows you to lend as little as $25 to a specific low-income entrepreneur in the developing world. You choose who to lend to - whether a baker in Afghanistan, a goat herder in Uganda, a farmer in Peru, a restaurateur in Cambodia, or a tailor in Iraq - and as they repay the loan, you get your money back.

If you join my lending team, we can work together to alleviate poverty. Kiva's aid is so valuable and actually works, changing lives in 3rd world countries.

I know I have a really nice Life. Even on my darkest days I eat. I sleep in a warm bed. So many people do not have this.

This is what I can do. I created a team called "Film" on the Kiva.org website. It's just some film lovers, making some micro loans, giving some life, and hope. Join Team Film on Kiva and be part of something good. Something right.

Kiva works. Be a rock star. Join!

P.S. You will shine from within.
