Illahee series #5- Jessica Jackley

Hi, I’m Tom Dwyer,

On April 12th at the First Congregational Church, the Illahee lecture series continues to explore the nature of power, money and change with Jessica Jackley, co-founder of Kiva dot org.

Kiva is the world’s first peer-to-peer micro-lending website.  It allows anyone to lend as little as $25 to individuals in the developing world to start or expand their small businesses and it has over a 98% repayment rate.  Kiva is one of the fastest-growing social benefit websites in history, connecting hundreds of thousands of people around the world.

With just a few clicks, Tom Dwyer Automotive Services was able to help an auto repair shop in Lebanon, a dairy in Kenya, and a recycling business in the Philippines.  And remember these are loans, not charity.

For more information about Jessica Jackley and the remaining speakers in this important lecture series, visit (Illahee dot com) or please follow the links from our web site.

By phone (five oh three, two three oh, twenty three hundred) or online at (tom dwyer dot com) we’re Tom Dwyer Automotive Services… trusted to keep your vehicles, safe, breakdown-free and operating at their best!
