Hi there! I’ve mentioned Kiva in the past. In case you missed that post, here’s what it’s all about: Kiva connects thousands of lenders all over the world to borrowers and partner institutions in developing countries. They help alleviate poverty through small loans, which help people set up new businesses. Exciting!
Kiva is once again offering a series of free trials, with sponsored $25 loans to get you started. What does that mean? Sign up with this link and you’ll get $25 to donate to any Kiva cause that you choose. When the money is paid back, it goes to the person who sponsored your loan (who has chosen to remain anonymous), but it will give you a chance to see how Kiva works for free, and you can help people around the world.
I just received a repayment on one of my loans, and I was informed that the free starter loans were available yet again.
Head over there now to give it a try. It takes less than five minutes to get started, and you can make a huge difference in someone else’s life. This is not charity: this is empowering someone to take action and change their lives by starting a new business. How exciting is that?!
