Even though it’s only March, I’ve made another 4 loans – taking my total to 6. There’s been partial repayment on two of these. I’m really enjoying being part of Kiva so expect to make 12 loans well before the end of the year. 2 months ago

This one speaks for itself. So far, I’ve given two loans. One to Malkhaz in Georgia and one to Zamira in Kyrgyzstan. The first has allowed Malkhaz to buy a taxi and the second funded livestock. Both are now fully funded. I reckon that this could get addictive! 4 months ago
Originally, my goal was to give 43 Kiva loans. So far, I’ve given 4. I think this goal will convince me to follow up and continue with giving Kiva loans. 4 months ago
went to Ashraf in Palestine to help him buy fruit and veg for his shop.

How I did it: Every month I just clicked on the Kiva site and loaned money to a person or a group. I tried to donate to people in several different parts of the world. Several of them have already repaid the loans!

went to a young guy in Palestine who needs it for his bakery, here.
Shadi is a 21-year-old single young man. For 1 1/2 years, he has had a bakery. This has been a profitable project and the only source of income to him, but he also needs more support to cover its costs and his needs.
Shadi is requesting a youth loan of 3,000 US dollars (USD) from FATEN to help him cover the costs of purchasing a new vehicle. He will use it for distributing bakery products to groceries and customers’ homes. This will improve Shadi’s work quality and increase the demand from his customers to request more bakery products. This will increase his income and offer him better living conditions. 9 months ago
