Kiva Update

I haven't posted any updates on my Kiva loan recently - but wanted to mention that Mrs. Margaret Adedeyinbo has once again made her loan payment on time and in full. Two more months, and the loan will be completely paid off!

Did you know that the average annual income in Nigeria is $1,188? The $950 that my fellow micro-loaners and I put together (in $25 increments) is a hefty chunk of change in that part of the world.

I think Kiva is such a cool and fascinating thing. If you haven't checked them out already, I hope you will...

Very nice! I double checked on my loan and it's been given and is due to start getting paid back in March. I love that my loan is to help a woman expand her business into making and selling ice cream. :)

That's so cool! The world definitely needs more ice cream. :) Nice pick!
