Qualifunds have always been supporters and advocates for community well being and support. More recently Qualifunds has taken a special interest in the KIVA program, and even more specifically, international women in agriculture. Since 2014 Qualifunds has aided in international philanthropy by lending money to women business owners in the Agricultural industry.
“Women can be under served financially and agricultural advancements are imperative to the world’s health and well being,” says Michael Pennartz of Qualifunds.
KIVA is an international nonprofit, founded in 2005 and based in San Francisco, with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. We celebrate and support people looking to create a better future for themselves, their families and their communities.
By lending as little as $25 on KIVA, anyone can help a borrower start or grow a business, go to school, access clean energy or realize their potential. For some, it’s a matter of survival, for others it’s the fuel for a life-long ambition.
100% of every dollar you lend on KIVA goes to funding loans. KIVA covers costs primarily through optional donations, as well as through support from grants and sponsors.
