Tonight I lent $50 to a project in Kenya trying to distribute efficient stoves and solar lights. I'm starting to wonder if this loan a day is still the best idea.
The idea was to a) have a trigger for me to work on this site every night b) to promote kiva.org c) ensure my nightly efforts at least had some positive impact rather than just writing this blog for myself d) to show people I'm here willing to commit s minutes some time/money every night to helping out anyone that is looking for help.
a) & c) are working out, need to work on b) and d)
Interesting thing, the loan tonight was to people in Kenya and they aren't paying interest. I thought that was pretty good even though I have a double standard for those in the US. Sorry US.
