Kiva Giving Free Trial Loans

Today is International Women’s Day and Kiva, my favorite charitable organization, is giving away free $25 trial loans. “This is available for anyone who is not currently a lender on Kiva, so they can learn what it means to empower a woman financially through microlending. When you help a woman achieve financial independence through entrepreneurship, you spark a virtuous cycle of change for her family, her community, and ultimately, the world.” Check it out!

    Kiva is great! Both my husband and I do it and have lent/re-lent our money for the last five or so years. Thanks for letting people know about it!
