Kiva Update

Last April I posted about making my first Kiva loan (to Ney in Peru) which I can now say has been successfully paid off on time and in full.  It warms my heart thinking of all the livestock that I helped to feed....well, I guess I actually helped them toward their death, but at least they were well fed while they were living. :)
I stuck with Peru and reloaned my funds to Raul, 51, who is trying to expand his farming operations in the mountainous Rio Negra - Satipo area.
Let's hope it goes just as smoothly and successfully as the last one!

  1. I enjoyed reading about both the lenders and those who needed the money. Might have to do this myself.
