There is a great organization called KIVA. This group facilitates the loaning of money to the working poor. The borrowers barely make enough money to clothe, feed and shelter their families.
Most families are independent entrepreneurs. Through hard work and dedication they are hopeful to make a better life with a little support from people who are more fortunate.
This is really a loan and not charity. I have been paid back on many loans. You have the option to have the money refunded to you or you can reinvest in someone else’s future.
I am one of several individuals that loaned money to the lady above. Her name is Elizabeth and she lives in Peru. She borrowed $1025 to in order to purchase another tricycle for her juice business. I am happy to say that she paid back every penny.
THIS IS A GREAT SITE. I’m very proud to have a small part in this caring organization.
