As many of you know my husband and I are huge supporters of KIVA—a micro financing organization that gives low interest loans to folks all around the world who are trying to make a go of their businesses. I am part of several “lending groups” including one with my family and friends and one that my brother sucked me into that is called “Guys Holding Fish”. Their loans are based on finding folks who have fish in their business somehow—whether it is selling fish or buying supplies to get fishing they have it covered. Lately I have been searching and finding a lot of tea related loans so you can imagine where I have been spending my repayments!
It is really quite simple—-go to the link I will post below and sign up. KIVA has great supporters who will give free $25 loans to first time lenders. It is a win win. You never even have to spend any of your own money that way—if you want to wait till that initial $25 is paid back you can then reloan it to someone else. It is a beautiful thing to help someone out and even better when you can do it for free!!! Check it out today–if you are interested in a personal invite I will be happy to send one to you via email. Just leave me a comment below (which also helps our Comments for a Cause for the month!) and I will send out an invite!!!
