Welcome to EncourageGirls.org! I’m Katie, and you’re either a family member or friend (or a friend of a friend, of a friend…). I’m so excited for all of us to get together and do some good!
So What’s the Plan?
The plan is to get a group together to give Micro-Loans to women (usually in third world countries) who need a helping hand to start a business and make a better life for themselves and their families.
Watch how a $65 loan helped Saima transform her life and the lives of other women in her village:

More about Kiva’s Micro-Loan Program
Kiva is the worlds first person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend to unique entrepreneurs around the globe. Its mission is to connect people through lending for the sake of alleviating poverty.
Kiva does not take any cut of the loan we donate—their administrative costs are covered by optional donations directed specifically for operational needs, as well as through grants, foundations, etc.
