1 down, 5 to go!
This year instead of feeding more money into my Kiva account I’ll be relending the money recipients have paid back to me. This is what makes Kiva so amazing. It’s a cycle!
For January/February’s loan I decided to lend to the Philippines. I cannot tell you how many times a day I’m reminded of how badly I want to go there. Between travel blogs, the Filipino restuarant down the street, and the friendly Filipino population in Abu Dhabi, I’m pretty confident it’s one amazing place. Until I can make it there a loan will have to do.
Not only does Rosa have 8 children to raise, she’s also runs a general store. She’s a hard worker who has previously requested and paid off 13 loans. That’s a pretty impressive track record. She plans to use the money to buy snacks to stock her store.
Valentine’s Day is coming up… a Kiva card could be the perfect gift!
