Expatriate Lenders – Team Lebanon

23Dec08

Kiva Lenders - Team LebanonKiva Lending is the world’s first person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend directly to unique entrepreneurs in the developing world, namely Lebanon.

The people you see on Kiva’s site are real individuals in need of funding – not marketing material. When you browse entrepreneurs’ profiles on the site, choose someone to lend to, and then make a loan, you are helping a real person make great strides towards economic independence and improve life for themselves, their family, and their community. Throughout the course of the loan (usually 6-12 months), you can receive email journal updates and track repayments. Then, when you get your loan money back, you can relend to someone else in need.

Team Lebanon, works mainly on lebanese Expatriates which have done a marvelous job on lending to entrepreneurs in Lebanon to set up their small to medium business.

The loans so far are generous, feel free to take a look, or add your name if you feel you are able to help out, you can even subscribe as Anonymous. There aren’t much members yet for Lebanon, as Kiva is new and relatively few people know about Kiva yet.

She came to understand a lot of things, with the inclusion of what it’s like to possess a marvelous coaching heart to let many others with ease master certain impossible things. You truly did more than people’s expectations. Many thanks for rendering such practical, trusted, informative and cool tips about this topic to Kate.

  2. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let you know
    a few of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why but
    I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same results.

  3. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your website.
    It appears as if some of the written text within your posts
    are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to
    them as well? This may be a problem with my browser because
    I’ve had this happen previously. Thanks

    para passar o speed em academias e clubes de saúde
    por causa de seus compromissos profissionais. Então, é a sua preferência em adiante lugar para alcançar
    uma solução claro e conveniente que é bom o suficiente para cumprir o

  5. Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
    losing months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any solutions to protect against
    hackers?

  6. Very good information. Lucky me I ran across your blog by
    accident (stumbleupon). I have book marked it for later!

  7. Do you have a spam issue on this blog; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; many of
    us have created some nice practices and we are looking to exchange strategies with others, please shoot me an e-mail if interested.

  8. Great to hear that you are a Kiva fan! If you (or your friends / family) are interested in getting more involved with Kiva, we have two core volunteer programs:

    • Kiva Fellows Program: Individuals spend 10 weeks to one year with a microfinance institution in a developing country, chronicling the lives of the working poor and assisting the microfinance institutions to maximize their relationship with Kiva. (www.kiva.org/fellows)

    • Kiva Translation Program: Volunteering from their own homes, individuals take entrepreneurs’ loan profiles written in the local language and translate to English, which are then posted for lending on Kiva.org. Kiva Translators help bring the entrepreneurs’ stories to life for potential lenders. (www.kiva.org/volunteer)

    ** Languages needed include: Bahasa Indonesia, French, Mongolian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Vietnamese.
