I had enough repayments on Kiva to make another $25 loan today. Apparently they are having trouble qualifying people fast enough to keep the site loaded with people who need loans. This time I lent to a woman in Nicaragua who runs a grocery store. I've also loaned to Pakistan, Cambodia and Tajikstan. (I don't even know where Tajikstan is!) I like being able to do something global. If you've never looked at their site, you should -www.kiva.org.
