We Are Proud to Be KIVA Lenders
Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he eats for a lifetime.
The Nice Agents are proud to support this international charity, providing entrepreneurs around the globe with the support they need to start their businesses. By supporting these start-up businesses in poverty stricken countries, we give them...
- the means to get off charity support themselves,
- the confidence of operating their own business to feed their families,
- and finally the pride of repaying the loan themselves so the money gets recycled to help even more people.
What is KIVA
Kiva is an organization that allows people to lend money via the Internet to low-income entrepreneurs and students in over 80 countries. Kiva's mission is "to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty."
Since 2005, Kiva has crowd-funded more than a million loans, totalling over $1 billion, with a repayment rate of between 98 and 99 percent. Millions of people are no longer dependant on charitable handouts to feed themselves and their children.
The pride and self confidence given to these entrepreneurs allows them to support their local communities, help others, and become leaders for real change in the world.
