Invitation to join Kiva

A few years ago Gail and I were given a Christmas present of a $25 Kiva voucher. Kiva is a charity organisation that arranges loans for people in developing countries. It works by you opening an account, or if your lucky like me someone giving you a voucher. You can then add money to the account, it still yours you haven't donated it. You can then look through the lists of people and groups who would like to borrow your money for business development projects, if you see one you like you can then lend money. As it's paid back you can lend it again and again and again.

It's a wonderful idea and very well done. I encourage you to take a look and see if it's something you want to do. There is some risk, as with any loan the borrower may default, but for me that's not a problem as I am not treating this as a financial investment, but as a spiritual investment. A way to get involved and understand a little more about how small business in developing countries around the world are doing, and God will give them a little help.

At the moment Kiva are offering to let you make a loan with their money so follow this link, find out more and maybe make a difference to someone else. Invitation to join
