E-Rewards and Kiva team up

Features North America

US— Micro-lending website Kiva, a non-profit organisation that aims to alleviate poverty in developing countries through donations, has appointed E-Rewards as its exclusive market research partner.

As a result of the partnership, E-Rewards has made a charitable donation and established a loan fund of $450,000 to provide microloans to support entrepreneurs in developing countries. The data collection firm has also issued $25 Kiva credits to its staff in order to let them donate to entrepreneurs of their choice.

Kurt Knapton (pictured), president and CEO at E-Rewards, said: “We share a common vision of improving our global community, and through this unique partnership, we are able to engage survey respondents, employees, clients and vendors in supporting the good work of Kiva.”

I've never before been part of a company that was so committed to charitable functions. In the past, we've participated in volunteer days where every employee helps out at a local food bank, women's shelter, or something similar. Now with Kiva, I've just lent $25 to an underprivileged farmer to help him purchase piglets for his farm. A good deed a day keeps the doctor away. :)
