Nicole is grateful.
I like craftsmen, I’ve decided. People who work with materials. Today I saw two on Kiva that called out to me and they were both craftsmen.
Yaovi Richard Segniga is a carpenter from Togo. To quote from Kiva: “However, the regularity of this income depends on a steady supply of wood and on having modern tools and machines so that he can fill orders in a timely fashion.
“For this reason, Mr. Segniga is asking for a loan of US$ 1000 to purchase wood and appropriate tools and machines. This will allow him to be certain of a steady income so that he can better cater for the needs of his family and improve their standard of living.” That sounds reasonable. I want that bed he has in the picture! By the way, as I write this, Mr. Segniga still needs funds, so go give him some if you can. :)
My other loan is Henry Obi a metal worker from Nigeria. I LOVE the doors and gates he displays in his photo.
