I've decided to move to weekly Kiva donations. It was a good trigger to work on the blog each night, but it also takes up time each night. So tonight I did a number of loans across Ecuador (farming), Peru (farming), Congo (construction), Burkina Faso (food resale), Cambodia (water filtration), and Kenya (solar light).
This Wednesday Kiva.org is hoping to crowdlend $3 million to women around the world. If you've been thinking about it, try it out on Wednesday, it's not even a donation, you get it all back. Over my years of lending I haven't had one loan not paid back, for the average kiva user they say the default rate is around 1%, so on $25 that's $0.25.
