As Red Kite Business Advisors, we understand the value of partnerships and working together to help our clients “fly high.” That’s why for every new project for Red Kite, we try to help another small business owner in our own way by donating on behalf of our clients. Therefore, we have partnered with Kiva, the world’s first person-to-person micro-lending website. Founded in 2005 and based in San Francisco, their mission is to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. By working with microfinance institutions around the world, they are able to provide loans to those without access to traditional banking systems.
Kiva has provided financial assistance of $1.25B to third world countries and poverty-stricken areas, in 81 countries, and 3.1M borrowers with a 96.9% repayment rate.
Red Kite is proud to be part of the grassroots effort to rebuild the world economy – one small business at a time. As loans are paid back, we will continue to reinvest our donation to help other small business owners.
