Kiva Lenders Have Character
By Prem Thomas, KF9, Philippines
Yesterday I took a trip to a CCT Kiva branch located in Caloocan, about 2 hours north of the head office in Manila. CCT offices often have inspirational posters and signs, but I thought this one was very relevant to Kiva.
Kiva lenders have good character: “They lend money to those in need without interest.”
Here are links to updates on some of the borrowers in Caloocan that have benefited from Kiva loans:
Teresa Barola: video game arcade owner
Genie Tabarangao: sari-sari (general) store owner
Gloria Espayos: news and spice stand operator
Prem Thomas is serving as a Kiva Fellow working with the new field partner Center for Community Transformation Credit Cooperative (CCT) in Manila, Philippines.
