I’m not sure how much I’ve mentioned it here before, but I love lending to entrepreneurs around the world through Kiva.org
I thought I’d post this in honour of my 20th loan! The best part about my Kiva account is that I am able to use the repayments I receive from 1 person to fund my next loan, so my original 3 loans of $25 each, are still going strong, 2 years on.
Everyone has a personal way of choosing who to make loans to, however I’ve been having a wonderful time on a trip around the world – making 20 loans to women, men and groups, in 20 different countries! I have helped finance loans in:
|The Democratic Republic Of The Congo|
But here’s the best part – for people who are new to Kiva,
You can get involved and try Kiva out for free!!
Simply use this link
And you can have a free trial loan where you will be helping someone, somewhere in the world to make their lives, the lives of their families and communities a little better.
Who will you make your loan to? How will you choose? Please come back and tell everyone all about it!
