Metaprinter Founder Starts Newspaper Professionals Group on KIVA

Press release from the issuing company

(December 01, 2008) Just because our industry is in transition, doesn't mean we are indifferent to the plight of others. We seek peace on earth and good will towards all human kind.  With this and the holidays in mind…

I want to raise awareness for my lending team, Newspaper Professionals, on Kiva, a non-profit website that allows you to lend as little as $25 to a specific low-income entrepreneur in the developing world. You choose who to lend to - whether a baker in Afghanistan, a goat herder in Uganda, a farmer in Peru, a restaurateur in Cambodia, or a tailor in Iraq - and as they repay the loan, you get your money back.

If you join my lending team, we can work together to alleviate poverty. Once you're a part of the team, you can choose to have a future loan on Kiva "count" towards our team's impact. The loan is still yours, and repayments still come to you - but you can also choose to have the loan show up in our team's collective portfolio, so our team's overall impact will grow!
