Join Our  Lending Team Michelle Rosenthal is the Team Captain!

When you make a loan of $25 or more it will be combined with many other small microloans of multiples of $25 until a requested loan amount is funded.  We can help people around the world so please join me.  There is a very high loan repayment rate. As soon as the person repays you back you may withdraw your money or you may re-lend the $25 to another borrower in need. 

I personally made 932 $25 loans on since 11/17/2011. 30 loans were made on this team and 902 loans on a different team that I established and lead. You may check out my lending history: Lender > Michelle Rosenthal, LMSW from Brooklyn, New York, United States | Kiva


If you need to borrow a micro-financing loan you can apply for a loan by clicking here: Loans that change lives | Kiva

You may apply to borrow up to $15,000 at 0% interest!
