I'm really excited about my loans. So far I've made 6; all to women involved in fiber arts and/or construction (ok, there's also a little fisher woman who called out to me). What I LOVE about Kiva is that if you choose, you can relive the giving, over and over and over. Get this.. for as little as $25.00 per loan.
This weekend I received my portion of the first payments for 4 different loans. These funds are put back into my account and I can either withdraw them, or do new loans. I just can't think of a deal like that anywhere else.
Have a look at Kiva. It might just blow your mind.
I am 'Annie' there too.. You could find my ladies and see what it was about them that moved me.
If you've made Kiva loans, I'd love to hear about it.
