Let me interrupt my selfish ruminations about days spent not working, and instead interject with something positive and important. An organization called Kiva brings another dimension to the idea of microfinance and microlending. It allows you to loan money directly to entrepreneurs around the world as they work towards the path of sustainability and self-sufficiency. It is a great idea for some very worthy folks. And the loan is small – $25.00. That amount can do alot for someone around the world.
I plan to make it a part of my monthly giving. Please check the website out and learn about some of the people that you could be helping. You could be helping someone like Vivian Duamor of Ghana.
