Today I made a micro-loan to Maria in Mórrope, Lambayeque, Peru using Kiva.
Maria is seeking a loan "to purchase medium turkeys to gain weight and resell for Christmas." (I have a sister-in-law named Maria who is Peruvian. How could I not pick this loan?)
If you have any interest in making micro-loans via Kiva, using this link will give an extra $25 to someone. You can loan as little as $25, and once your loan is paid back, you can loan it out again to someone else.
