A portion of all proceeds from Elevate Circle supports Kiva, a non-profit organization providing micro loans to entrepreneurs in developing countries. It’s our mission and goal to support entrepreneurs in need from around the world and reach the $1,000,000 mark by the end of the decade. [Check our progress]
Why Kiva? We’ve all heard the proverb “Give a Man a Fish, and You Feed Him for a Day. Teach a Man To Fish, and You Feed Him for a Lifetime”. What often happens with charity is that it leads to dependency rather than empowerment. Lending through Kiva, on the other hand, takes the whole “Teach a Man To Fish” one level further because it does not assume we know better than the local entrepreneurs. There is no “teaching” involved, just simple empowerment.
