Dick was an enthusiastic supporter of Kiva and his loan project details can be viewed here. A new Kiva team has been created – the Dick Adamson Memorial Fund. Contributions to the Dick Adamson Memorial Fund team can be made by joining Kiva and then selecting the team when you make donations.
Kiva’s mission is to connect people through lending for the sake of alleviating poverty.
Kiva is the world’s first person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend directly to unique entrepreneurs in the developing world.
Kiva is a non-profit that allows you to lend as little as $25USD to a specific low-income entrepreneur in the developing world.
You choose who to lend to – whether a baker in Afghanistan, a goat herder in Uganda, a farmer in Peru, a restaurateur in Cambodia, or a tailor in Iraq – and as they repay their loan, you get your money back. It’s a powerful and sustainable way to empower someone right now to lift themselves out of poverty.
