    Hello!

    Hi!

    I just made a loan to someone in Bolivia using a revolutionary new website called Kiva (http://www.kiva.org).

    You can go to Kiva's website and lend to someone across the globe who needs a loan for their business – like raising goats, selling vegetables at market or making bricks. Each loan has a picture of the entrepreneur, a description of their business and how they plan to use the loan so you know exactly how your money is being spent – and you get updates letting you know how the entrepreneur is going.

    The best part is, when the entrepreneur pays back their loan you get your money back – and Kiva's loans are managed by microfinance institutions on the ground who have a lot of experience doing this, so you can trust that your money is being handled responsibly.

    I just made a loan to an entrepreneur named 28 De Julio Group in Bolivia. They still need another $1,900.00 to complete their loan request of $4,950.00 (you can loan as little as $25.00!). Help me get this entrepreneur off the ground by clicking on the link below to make a loan to 28 De Julio Group too:

    It's finally easy to actually do something about poverty – using Kiva I know exactly who my money is loaned to and what they're using it for. And most of all, I know that I'm helping them build a
    sustainable business that will provide income to feed, clothe, house and educate their family long after my loan is paid back.

    Join me in changing the world – one loan at a time.

    Thanks!
