I got an email the other day that my loan recipient from Kiva.org has made his first repayment toward the $800 he received to grow his beauty shop in Africa. I never intend to get the money back…but once it’s returned to you, of course you can re-lend it and make a difference in someone’s else’s life.
Please explore this option in 2007 if you haven’t already. The Micro-Lending concept is so powerful…especially in places where $800 is like a VC home run.
Blessings to Kiva members, volunteers, and organizers.
