Clarity Quest Marketing, based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, loans percentage of 2007/2008 profits to third-world entrepreneurs through Kiva.org.

"Nothing succeeds like success" is a time-honored truism in business, and Clarity Quest Marketing is bent on spreading its success to budding businesses in the third world.

To foster entrepreneurship around the world, Clarity Quest Marketing announced today it will loan a percentage of the company's net profits in 2007 and 2008 to business owners in developing countries via Kiva.org -- an organization which provides microloans to unique small businesses in developing countries. Through Kiva, companies and individuals can "sponsor a business" and help the world's working poor make great strides towards economic independence.

"American entrepreneurs, especially women, are so lucky to have access to capital to start a venture," said Christine Slocumb principal at Clarity Quest. "Our firm cannot think of a better way to change lives than by helping fledgling business owners achieve financial independence."

As an incentive to its neighboring Michigan technology businesses, Clarity Quest offers a 5 percent discount on new marketing services to any client that also funds a microloan through Kiva and places a Kiva banner and web link on its website.
