I just received a notification that my first Kiva loan has been repaid! Kiva is a micro-lending website where you can make loans directly to entrepreneurs in the developing world. You can see who I am lending to on my Lender Page.
It’s a great way to help people improve life for themselves and it gives you a real connection with the people you lend to in interesting places around the world. So far I have made micro-loans to people in Kenya, Tajikistan, Peru and Cambodia.
