The International Microloans of Buffalo is a not-for-profit organization founded on the basis of social entrepreneurship. IMB uses small loans to give struggling families around the world an opportunity to improve their standard of living by expanding their subsistence businesses.
Our founders are seniors at St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute in Buffalo, New York. They are working with an international organization called Kiva to help distribute small loans to struggling families in developing nations. International Micro-Loans of Buffalo Inc. has raised money from a group of donors that they will use to make loans through Kiva, who finds small businesses in need of loans.

"Knowing that someone out there wishes the best for you is enough to give you drive to achieve your dream."
- Sammy, a Kiva borrower in Kenya
