Given my background, I am very supportive of anyone trying to provide or facilitate private or public transport. Be it for people (my specialty) or goods.
In this case we have Brother Victor
Who after 15 years in the trade, sees the value of a larger trailer to deliver more goods in fewer trips. I agree with him.

Last month I made my tenth and eleventh loans, so I’m a quarter of the way there. It seams to be getting much easier to make loans now that they are beginning to be paid off. I can just turn that money around and loan it to someone else! 7 months ago

Hi 43 Thingers!
I recently made a loan to Houda of Lebanon. Her loan is nearly funded but we need six more people to chip in. I chose her because she has a well-established clothing business.
There are no loans available to help Syrian business owners. I hoped that helping a business owner in neighboring Lebanon might be a tiny step toward future stability in the region.
Here’s the link to her profile: http://www.kiva.org/lend/448483?_te=lew&utm_source=email&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=expiration_warning 10 months ago
I love getting an email that says my funds are available for more loans. :)
Damaris is 42 years old. She makes and sells a variety of sweets which she prepares at home in a wood-fired brick oven. She then delivers them to the corner stores and grocery stores in her area. She has been working this way for more than two years. She enjoys what she does, especially since it keeps her busy, which is one of the reasons she decided to start her business. She also wanted to have a source of income which would allow her to help her partner cover their living expenses and educate their children. 10 months ago

Houda who sells clothes, also in Lebanon
I chose Lebanon today because my heart is breaking for Syria. Loans to Syrian business people aren’t an option, so I’m loaning to business people in a neighboring country. 10 months ago
I have an Etsy store where I have been selling vintage books for the past couple months. It doesn’t make a lot of money for me, I just do it because I love books. Anyway, since the profits go to my Paypal account I have been using this money to help fund my loans. So I have found a hobby that helps me help other people. Win-win-win. 11 months ago

I loaned the money to Monina who is asking for a loan of PHP 15,000 to maintain her spouse’s business. Her loan will be invested in buying tires, crude oil and gasoline for the motorcycle. It will help ensure safe travel for all his passengers, and thus will generate good income too. She will use the additional revenue generated to sustain her hogs. Someday, she is hoping to achieve a progressive life for her family. 11 months ago
