July 16, 2014 - Dr. Sandra Loeb, associate professor of marketing at King’s College, recently travelled to Zambia in Southern Africa to evaluate training programs for family’s receiving microloans through Power of Love, a non-profit charity that provides holistic care to children in Zambia infected with AIDS.

The Power of Love Foundation (poweroflove.org) was founded in 2002 to develop community responses to the HIV/AIDS crisis in Africa. Power of Love’s micro loans program, in which the average loan is between $120-$150, has 240 women enrolled with the majority running successful businesses, including groceries, restaurants, and clothing shops.

After earning a doctorate in marketing from Kent State University, Loeb taught in universities in the U.S., Vietnam, Poland, and through the Fulbright program in Ukraine. Prior to coming to King’s, she was a chaired professor in the international business program at Europa University, Viadrina, Germany.

King's College is a Catholic College sponsored by the Congregation of Holy Cross.
