Kiva.org – Loans That Change Lives

September 27, 2007 at 9:42 am Leave a comment

First I read about Kiva.org on Yahoo. Then it was featured on Oprah. I was just going through my favorites tab and remembered…I’m overdue to rave about this organization!

What a simple concept…small loans given to people in an effort to start or enhance a business. So far over $10 million (million!) has been loaned, and most loans have been fully repaid.

What makes this program so accessible is that the maximum loan you can make at this time is $25…a fairly manageable number. Once the loan is repaid, you may loan the same $25 again…it’s the gift that keeps on giving!

If you are intrigued and/or interested, go to the site and review all of the current loan applicants. Read their stories…review all of the people that have given to the cause…I guarantee you will be touched.
