KIVA, a microfinance organization that gives small business loans to individuals around the world. It allows individuals of modest means, who otherwise would not qualify for a traditional bank loan, to be able to create and maintain their own business/cottage industry. In keeping with the vegan theme of the fundraiser, it was agreed that we would try and select a loan recipient (we get to choose who the money is lent to) that did not directly involve the exploitation of animals.
