Small Business Finance Forum is proud to announce official recognition as a business supporter of Kiva. For every hour of consulting service performed, Small Business Finance Forum will make a donation to Kiva to support their mission in providing micro loans to alleviate poverty throughout the world.
“Having lived and traveled throughout the world, I have seen poverty up close.” States Nicole Fende, President of Small Business Finance Forum. “I know that children born into these conditions have little hope to improve their lives, unless someone offers them a hand up. For Small Business Finance Forum, I have set the second bottom line goal to provide the opportunities to others that I often take for granted.”
Ms. Fende, as the The Numbers Whisperer®, offers a weekly plain English definition of finance terms. Here she takes on the term Double Bottom Line. “Everyone has heard of the bottom line – the profits that your business earns. There is another bottom line, the lesser known younger sibling to The Bottom Line. Often referred to as Double Bottom Line, it reflects a company’s impact on social and environmental issues. You might call it the Tree Huggers Ledger. It provides accountability for the company against its stated social goals.”
Small Business Finance Forum has formally committed to Kiva to donate $2 for every hour of consulting services performed. Every time you hire Small Business Finance Forum, you are also helping someone else.
Kiva is a non-profit organization with a mission to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.
