KIVA Update

KIVA Update

Remember when I told you about the two people I lent money to via Kiva.org?  Well, I just received an update on their loan repayments and have enough back to lend to another person!  If you are looking for a good cause that gives a hand up instead of a handout, I highly recommend Kiva.

Hi Daria,
We’d like to give you a repayment update on the loans you’ve made
through Kiva.

A total of $5.62 has been repaid over the past month! As of December 21,
2010, you now have $25.62 in Kiva Credit in your account.

Click here to re-lend, withdraw or donate these funds! Or you can use
these funds to purchase a Kiva Card — a thoughtful gift for a friend.

  1. Daria! You left the most wonderful comment on my blog and it truly made my day. I think I have just made a kindred souled friend… I LOVE LOVE LOVE Kiva and we have been supporters for several years now. We have loans that have been fully paid and then reinvested 4 or 5 times now and each time we receive notification I feel like my heart could explode. Empowerment is very empowering lol

    • I agree! I just FINALLY loaned via Kiva this year. It was one of those things that I intended to do, but put off a day, then a week, then a year :D. Finally one day at work this summer, I just said to myself do it now and am so glad that I finally did. I LOVE getting the updates and seeing the faces of the women I’ve helped. I also LOVE that it’s a hand up (empowerment). I just this week got my notification that I have enough to loan again. Wow, that was fun! I have the lady that I chose for my 3rd loan posting on Sunday.

      It truly is amazing to be able to help others, isn’t it? I’ve been very fortunate and this year have done more than I’ve ever done in my life combined. I will never stop now that I’m addicted to that high! Silly, but it really is selfish of me to give to others. It makes me feel SO good! :)

      Thank you for stopping by and making my day in return. I hope you and yours have a very merry holiday!!
