How the Investment is Going

I won a Kiva gift certificate via Solomon Broad's blog, "Things I am Grateful For." I invested my certificate by giving to a woman named Marina who needs money to fill orders for her shoe sale efforts. It is nice to at least be able to do a little to help. It has been 9 days since all the money Marina needed was raised...I hope that business is going well for her.

Kiva works by dividing the loan among a bunch of can lend as little as 25 dollars. There is a VERY low default rate.

Personally, I think Kiva gift certificates would make wonderful Valentine's certificates. :-)
