I make microloans via Kiva microfinance Organization on a regular basis, and as part of International Women’s Day, Kiva is sponsoring $3 million (!!!) in free loans to women as a way to empower women, and, by making their lives better, make everyone’s lives better.

We have the data (links below), and treating women as full human beings with equal access to education, healthcare, jobs, and every aspect of full participation in public life, means better outcomes not only for the women, but for their children and families.
Not everyone chooses to have children, but everyone existing was born. Making women’s lives better will make everyone’s lives better.
