Penguins Arena - Sedna's World
$1 lent to needy entrepreneurs via Kiva for every copy sold.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Reims, FRANCE – November, 11 2008 – Today Frogames, an independant video game developer, makes its first loans on www.kiva.org to unique entrepreneurs in the developing world attempting to lift themselves out of poverty.
“I try to be an eco-citizen in my everyday life. So when I created my little company, I did so with a corporate social responsibility philosophy.” said Christophe CANON, co-founder.
Frogames’ first game “Penguins Arena” is cartoonish, funny and yet eco-responsible with its environmental background (global warning).
Now Frogames wants to go further and Kiva is a great opportunity for the team to support the working poor.
Kiva is a person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend directly to unique entrepreneurs in the developing world.
The loans made to people on www.kiva.org help them make great strides towards economic independence and improve life for themselves, their family and their community.
