Kiva is a nonprofit organization that facilitates micro-loans to enterprising individuals around the world so that they may earn their own way out of poverty. By making loans through the Kiva website, you can be part of the solution to poverty AND earn points and miles (because you can use your credit card to finance loans).
Two years ago, the Kiva Lending Team started up on Milepoint and quickly began breaking records left and right. Despite our relatively small size, we are ranked 2nd among all Kiva teams in terms of amount loaned!
You can help us celebrate our 2nd anniversary by joining the Milepoint team and making a loan on our anniversary date: Tuesday Feb 12. The team captains have pledged to match every loan up to $17,500 made on this day.
Since we have members all around the world, we will use a Milepoint Kiva Day – starting at midnight Feb 12th Samoa time; ending at Feb 12th 11:59 p.m. Hawaii time. Regardless of your time zone, make a loan on Feb 12th and the Milepoint Kiva Captains will match these loans up to $17,500 in new money.
