Kiva Loan Repayment Update

Bill Quell - Wednesday, April 17, 2013

I am happy to report that one of the gentlemen I have sent a few bucks to has now repaid almost his entire Kiva loan:

 

Patterson 
Kenya  |  Agriculture
You Loaned: $25.00
Newly Repaid: $1.91
Total Repaid So Far: $24.83 (99.32% of your loan)
Repayment Status: Paying back on time
What makes me happy about this? Not that I am getting my money back. I couldn't care less about that, quite frankly. No...what makes me happy about the fact that this loan is almost completely paid in full is that it means Patterson is succeeding. He's reaching his goals - and that means he'll continue to thrive in his life and to provide for himself and his family.

I am once again stricken with how delightful it is to share such a painless $25 that can make such a difference in someone's life.

Once again, I thank Kiva for their wonderful work - and I ask you to join the Kiva ClickAwayCreative.com Team and make a contribution today!


Kiva is Now in India

Bill Quell - Thursday, August 30, 2012

Great news from the folks at Kiva: they are now enabling fortunate folks like you and I to make micro-loans to people in need in India!

 

Kiva just got more global. Lenders can now make loans as small as $25 to help borrowers in some of the poorest regions of India build sustainable futures. This is the heart of Kiva's mission —bringing opportunity where it's needed most.

What to know about Kiva in India

With 68% of India's population living below the international poverty line, access to affordable financial services is more critical than ever. Kiva's approach is defined by:

  • Our Field Partnerships with 3 socially-driven nonprofits — People's Forum, Mahashakti Foundation, and WSDS-Initiate.
  • A commitment to serving marginalized communities, including the very poor, widows, and the disabled, who have had little to no access to credit.
  • Kiva's overarching goal to connect millions of people around the world through lending to alleviate poverty.

Even if all of the loans on kiva.org/india are currently funded, there will be more chances to support borrowers in this part of the world. Stay tuned, and consider making a loan to another borrower in need.

What is "success" if it's not shared with those who enjoy less opportunity than we are blessed with?

In the spirit of sharing, ClickAwayCreative.com has set up a Team on Kiva.org - and we've made our first donation to the cause: $25 in support of Christine, who lives in Rwanda and has requested a Kiva loan to use for a seedling bed and for labor costs. She plans to use the profits to pay school fees for her children and to pay for medical insurance.

As ClickAwayCreative.com continues to grow, donating to Kiva.org is part of our ongoing plan. Thank you to all our clients, who make our continued participation in Kiva's mission possible through your ongoing trust in what we do to help you get more of the _______ you're after.
