Clarus is a values-driven IT consulting firm committed existing in harmony with our social and physical environment. We value being able to control your own destiny, which is why we make microloans to people who really need some help and are less fortunate than us via Kiva. It is a hand up, rather than a hand out and these loans change lives.
