We wanted to take a moment out of the day to let you know about a great cause that we just found out about. Although we are still in a recession and times are rough, the team here thought it was time to start thinking about how to help each other out... so we went global!
We found a great way to help others help themselves by giving micro-loans to individuals in developing countries who are trying to start their businesses. Obviously this cause appealed to us at Such A Voice, as everyday we try to give you the tools to start your own business and successfully market yourself!
Kiva is an international, person-to-person micro-lending website that empowers individuals to lend small amounts of money to budding entrepreneurs around the world. Kiva partners with existing micro-finance institutions, and you can actually see and track the progress of the individual you decide to give a loan to online. We are excited to tell you that we are in the process of making our first loan with the Voice Artist team!
If you are interested in joining other voice talents to help fellow entrepreneurs around the world get started with their businesses, or if you are just curious to see what we've been up to, check out our Voice Artist team page at: http://www.kiva.org/team/voiceartists
