BENEFITING: Kiva Microfunds
My birthday is about a month away (March 3rd) and I have a birthday wish. I would like to raise $500 for KIVA! If you haven't seen this site, check it out. KIVA is non-profit and provides microloans to individuals for their businesses. Leveraging the internet and a worldwide network of microfinance institutions, Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world. Very innovative idea of helping people help themselves. And, less the recipients pay back the money over time like a traditional loan.
