This time I participated in loans to women in Kenya, Ecuador, and Colombia. All of them have retail businesses, with one selling paper and another offering cloth and dressmaking supplies.
If you haven’t heard of them, you can learn more about Kiva here. I’ve also blogged about Kiva a couple of times. Oh, and here’s another. What is amazing about this (I know, I’ve said it before) is that as the loans are repaid, you can lend that money over and over again. I get to help people through micro loans in countries all over the world. And then help some more.
According to Kiva, I’ve lent (and re-lent) a total of $800 in the past few years. Even my tiny business and modest donations add up! Do you want to get involved? For a limited time, Kiva is giving away free trials. Click here to get started. And then come back and leave a comment so we can all find out who you helped!
