WOW - a huge "well done" to our church Kiva team on reaching a great "milestone".

$5000 loaned out in 45 different countries around the globe. Peter Walkingshaw one of our church leaders said, "It's great to see the way that our church here in Carlisle is able to make a difference to people all over the world. While it's right to send aid in some situations Kiva is a great way of helping people who want a "hand up not a hand out" with manageable micro loans."

Carlisle Baptist Church has had a Kiva team since 2013 and in that time has helped 186 people or projects. The loans are made $25 at a time (about £17) and are repaid over periods of 6 months to 3 years.
