In 2011 we won an award for Best New Community Project. We enable people without access to traditional banks (including many women) to expand their businesses, educate their children, save for the future and raise themselves out of poverty. Through Kiva, a non-profit organisation working with microfinance institutions, you choose a borrower to support with a loan of just $5 via Kiva Zip or $25 via Kiva. Similar loans by other lenders are combined until the required total is reached. As your money is repaid (often in monthly instalments), you can withdraw it or lend it to someone else. Money that is loaned over and over again does more good than a one-time donation. Join 'Genealogists for Families' - together we are making a difference!

Free Trial: new Kiva users get a free $25 loan

Please tell your friends that right now there is a FREE TRIAL offer that lets them join Kiva and make a $25 loan without it costing them a cent!

This is a great opportunity to introduce others to the joys of being a Kiva lender. Details will be on www.kiva.org until the free loans have all been allocated. Invite your friends to give it a try, but be quick!

Those who make a free loan are also welcome to join our 'Genealogists for Families' lending team.

  1. Recently it has been taking a long time for blog posts to be sent by email. As this one is 'time critical', I am also also posting the information as a comment because I think that will reach you sooner.

    Please spread the word quickly, as these free trials are only available for a short time.

  2. When I checked a moment ago, there were still 29,000 free loans available at www.kiva.org. Invite your friends to give it a try! Those who make a free loan are also welcome to join our 'Genealogists for Families' lending team if they wish, but the free loans are not directly linked to the team.
