At VroomVroomVroom, we understand the importance of giving back.
In 2014, VroomVroomVroom discovered Kiva: an international non-profit with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty.
Since then we have lent $55,175 to 349 people!
What does Kiva do?
The premise is that Kiva lends money to a cross section of the global community. Whether it be a family in Sudan who needs a loan to fix their house, an entrepreneur starting up a business in Cambodia, a farmer in Vietnam needing to buy pigs or someone in the Philippines who needs to rebuild after a typhoon. For some, it is a way of survival and for others it helps them reach their goals.
How does VroomVroomVroom help?
The idea is that we lend money to someone in need and then they make repayments once they are financially stable. Once the money is returned, we are then able to lend it to someone else in need. By doing this, it allows people the opportunity to get back on their feet. The process continues over and over again, giving the loan that ability to help countless people.
Where VroomVroomVroom lends to:
Did you know that Kiva works in 81 countries? With over 3.1 million borrowers, partnering with Kiva means that VroomVroomVroom can help make a difference in many people’s lives. Instead of donating, the ability to loan money means that it is possible to reach more people and make an impact.
VroomVroomVroom is proud to be part of such a phenomenal initiative and looks forward to helping more people in the future.
