Dancing Fools Press

Our first loan!

One of the decisions we made when we started Dancing Fools Press was that it is very important to us that we help others with a portion of the profits generated by DFP. Because we were unable to find a national or international organization that focused on women's literacy, we've chosen instead to commit to lending 1% of our profits through Kiva to women running their own businesses.

We're happy to announce that we've made our first loan. :)

Once this microloan has been repaid and/or we've reached the threshold to start another loan, the money will be lent to another businesswoman, furthering the goals of Kiva and the women they empower.
