Anonymous asked: After reading one of your posts about Kiva a while back, I checked out the website for myself and I fell in love with the cause. I decided that for my birthday this year, instead of asking for gifts I'm going to ask for cash to loan to one or more people on the site. I'm a college student with health care, clothes, food, a computer... what else could I ask for?
So thank you for bringing this cause to my attention, I'm excited to help people who need a little cash!
Hey! Sounds like an awesome plan!! You can lend as little as $25, so you can find a few people you want to contribute to (depending on how much dinero you get from your parents). Or you can choose to lend a bigger chunk of cash to one person. There are student loans (more to come in Sept), green loans, loans for people with disabilities…. And after that, the borrower(s) will repay you and you can lend again! It’s the gift that keeps on giving! You should feel really good, these people have absolutely no access to credit. Personally, I couldn’t get through school without student loans so I know how important financial institutions can be to enhance someone life! The fun part is scrolling through all the different people to choose from and then getting updates about them after they use your contribution! Enjoy and let me know if you have any questions!
