Making A Difference
If you are not involved in this charity, please take the time to become aquainted with its mission. KIVA makes micro loans that allows those in poverty to start small businesses to change their circumstances. You pick the person and the project. When the money is repaid into your account, you turn it around to help a new project.
What makes it such a wonderful project is that even the smallest amount can change a life. Give a child a KIVA certificate and let them go on line to see how "their" business is doing. It is a wonderful way to make a commitment to improving the world. The life stories about the people and countries are fascinating.
