Hey Everyone. We have started a "team" on Kiva.org. Kiva is the microcredit website where you can donate at little as $25 to go toward a loan to a small businessperson in the developing world. Kiva has helped to raise millions of dollars for microcredit and has helped the banks that help the poor people receive more finds.
Our blog is meant to shed light on a very dark problem. For those of you how have read the blog and are motivated to lend a helping hand, this is a great way to do it. You can even do it while still in your pajamas. Even for those who have already made loans on Kiva we would love to have you.
Visit the team page at http://www.kiva.org/team/poverty_news_blog_team
We are taking the rest of the week off, see you in 2010!
