Our Kiva Milestone

I am a great believer in the work of Kiva, through whom we act as a micro lender to support people in developing counties by making small loans. It is an exciting concept and great to watch businesses in developing countries prosper.

Today, I achieved a milestone – my 100th loan to a Kiva borrower!

These loans have ranged upwards of only $25 and we have joined many others in lending to people such as a truck driver in  Tajikistan, a poultry producer in Vietnam and a bicycle repairer in Ghana. It’s amazing how just a little can make a big difference in relieving poverty and developing financial independence in countries where people may earn as little as one or two dollars per day.

Perhaps you could consider taking on this work as well – only $25 every now and then makes a big difference. You can pay by credit card or through Pay Pal.

I don’t know where those fifty five years have gone. Perhaps getting married, having children, raising a family, developing a career, working hard […]

Here are a few more images from my Lightscape visit. I’m testing whether some different software will make images available to Apple users who currently see just a placeholder in the emails that this website publishes. Unfortunately, Apple (Mac, iPad and iPhone) users need to click on the title in the email to open the […]
