kiva

Just lent Samuel from Bolivia $25 through Kiva, essentially a worldwide microfinancing organization, connecting lenders with microfinancing institutions with borrowers. That $25 is part of a larger loan to help Samuel with his welding business. It’s kind of like a gift that just keeps on giving – as soon as I get my $25 back, I can loan it to someone else, and then someone else, and the someone else…you get the idea.
