Checking on my Kiva investment......

I have a 25-dollar investment on Kiva. Kiva lends by banding a bunch of people together who donate little amounts.

The lady that I am funding is 50% paid back and is using the money for buying products for her shoe sales. I look forward to re-investing this when the lady gets done repaying....very low default rate and we are half way there.

I wish that I was able to communicate more with the people that I am funding though....more of a true (world) community effort.

I've heard of that program before. Sounds really promising.


Bill Clinton and others talk of it all the time. It is working well so far. I have heard nothing but positive about it from all the people I know who participate in the Blogosphere. :-)
