Kiva


Have you ever heard of Kiva?  It is a microloan company that lends to impoverished people to help them get out of poverty.

I've been a member for quite a while, reloaning the same $25 to help six different women in six different countries (Tajikistan, Uganda, Peru, Paraguay Nigeria and Mongolia).  I find it really interesting to find people to lend to, and I'm always so happy for them when I get repaid.  Sometimes they take longer then they said they would to repay, but so far no one has defaulted.

just thought I'd share my experience and invite you to join.
