Today I finally made it! The 100th loan was to a woman in Togo who sells charcoal. Her name is Amele and this is her first loan, she wants to expand her business. Togo is the 10th poorest country in world in 2012. Hopefully, this little bit helps.
My goal is complete, but I will continue to fund more Kiva loans. I’ve made loans to people all over the world – in 56 different countries. I learned a lot about them and the people, about their lives, their struggles, and their goals. I hope what I shared with them made a difference in their lives, to make it a little easier, a little better, and more filled with hope to realize their dreams.
This has been very worthwhile.
