I’m sitting in a english village and yet I can lend directly to someone halfway around the world. I – and every other Kiva lender – can help people to help themselves, to improve their life and those of those around them.
I think that is amazing.

I just passed the 50 loan mark at Kiva hence this post and I look forward to my 100th.

Kiva’s mission is to connect people, through lending, for the sake of alleviating poverty.

Kiva empowers individuals to lend to an entrepreneur across the globe. By combining microfinance with the internet, Kiva is creating a global community of people connected through lending.

Go lend $25.
