Something we can all do today!

Thursday, April 03, 2008

Hi Guys!
Daniel has been asking for something "to do" and so, Daniel, this is for you:

I have so far made two loans to women in the developing world using a revolutionary new website called Kiva.

My 2nd Kiva Loan


I would like to encourage everyone to go to Kiva's website and lend to someone in the developing world who needs a loan for their business - like raising goats, selling vegetables at market or making bricks. As you can see in the above picture, each loan has a picture of the entrepreneur, a description of their business and how they plan to use the loan so you know exactly how your money is being spent - and you get updates letting you know how the entrepreneur is doing. The best part is, when the entrepreneur pays back their loan you get your money back - and Kiva's loans are managed by microfinance institutions on the ground who have a lot of experience doing this, so you can trust that your money is being handled responsibly.

The first loan I made has been repaid, so I recycled the money and this loan is to an entrepreneur named Thoun Yan in Cambodia. They still need another $275.00 to complete their loan request of $800.00 (you can loan as little as $25.00!). Help me get this entrepreneur off the ground by clicking on this link to make a loan to Thoun Yan. Or you can find someone else to support. We have an active link in our sidebar, I'm sure you've all seen it by now.

It's finally easy to actually do something about poverty - using Kiva I know exactly who my money is loaned to and what they're using it for. And most of all, I know that I'm helping them build a sustainable business that will provide income to feed, clothe, house and educate their family long after my loan is paid back.

Join me in changing the world - one loan at a time.
