How do I add loans to the Black Women in Europe™’s lending team?: Whenever you lend, you have the opportunity to count that loan toward the Black Women in Europe™’s lending team. You can count a loan toward a lending team of your choosing by following these steps:
Step 1: Click on the “Lend” button at the top of the Kiva home page. You will automatically be taken to the entrepreneurs in need.
Step 2: When you find an entrepreneur that you would like to fund either click “Lend $25” to quickly lend $25, or click the name of the entrepreneur and then select the amount you would like to fund from the drop down box and click “Lend”.
Step 3: Add additional loans to your basket or click “Loan Added! Checkout.”
Step 4: You’ll be taken to your basket where you can select what lending team your loans should count towards. Beneath the “Count Towards Team” column, you’ll see a drop down box with Black Women in Europe™’s lending team listed. Click that box and select the lending team you wish the loan to count towards. If you want to change the amount you wish to lend, select the amount in the drop down menu. When you’re finished, click “Continue.”
Step 5: Choose a password to create an account, or log into your Kiva account.
Step 6: Make an optional donation to Kiva’s operational expenses or click “No Thanks.”
