Not sure how many are familiar with the concept of micro loaning and micro credit
But hopefully you heard Muhammad Yunus who won Nobel prize for his activity


There is a wonderful site and service to help us do such loaning from the comfort of the keyboard. Look at Kiva.org
I have been lending money there for quite some time, always paid back and it is one more way of helping the needed.
I opened a group there for Ipeace, if you open (or already have) an account there, join the group and let us lend together.
If anyone joins Kiva, just drop a word here so we can follow
I am not sure how the team feature work there, I did it till now on personal level, but it will be fun to explore. If people join and lend then I will create a group here and we will report back what was loaned and to whom, it will be fun to follow.

And bear in mind they have technical issue now, so we need to be patient

I created the group and will update there the total sum of our team loans (currently $50)
Hi all,

These loans are great! I first read about micro loans last year-- It is a wonderful way to help and what seems like a little bit of $ really does go a long way. Furthermore, the people are very good about repayment.
Indeed most people do have good intent and it only takes one to make a mellovahess of a good thing; nonetheless, I am inclined to agree to help those who are need financially-- MInd you, not that I have lots of bucks lying in wait as, I have recently encountered a cash flow issue myself due to circumstances beyond my control--mainly my 65 year young mother has become disabled. She is without any 401K plan or significant savings-- She was a housewife who held only a high school degree; therefore, most jobs she worked (after returning to the work force were not high paying positions with benefits). I am a part of that generation who will have to care for their parents I guess and I do so willingly.Have it good and may the light of all lights bless honest attempt to assist! Abiding Peace & Hope--
Exciting news! Kiva's entry "Loans that change lives" has just been voted one of the Top 25 in the American Express Members Project online competition. Only the Top 5 projects by popular vote will move on to the final round to compete for a $1.5 million First Prize. We need your help between now and September 29th to get as many votes as possible!
