Thursday, May 24th, 2018 | | Money

MetLife Foundation has established partnership with Kiva, a global non-governmental organization, to support entrepreneurs across the globe through an employee engagement campaign.

“As part of this program, a fully funded US$ 25 loan has been allocated to each of MetLife’s 23,000 employees in Asia to help entrepreneurs start, sustain and grow their businesses,” reads a statement issued by the foundation. The ‘Take Action’ campaign by the two companies will provide MetLife employees with an opportunity to assist aspiring entrepreneurs by providing them with financing for their projects and ideas, the foundation added in the statement. “The companies will now be granting access to low-income families with the facility of credit and financing.”
