Leave a comment

During the last weeks I had made some additional deposits on Kiva to help people all over the world geeting loans for different purposes.

Funding a loan might take some time till all shares are collected. When this has been accomplished you will get a messages of the Kiva team as in the below example:

This is an update on your loan to Nyakagezi Gamba Nokora Group in Uganda.

Thanks to you and 90 other Kiva Lenders, the $2,475.00 loan request in Uganda has been 100% funded.

This loan will be used for the purpose of: to purchase high grade manure for his farm.

Over the 9 months of this loan, Kiva’s Field Partner in Uganda, Pearl Microfinance Limited, will be collecting repayments from this entrepreneur and posting progress updates on the Kiva website.

Thanks for lending to the world’s working poor on Kiva!

So I am quite happy now that all the money I have made available has found its way to help people.

You’ll find my activities on Kiva under http://kiva.org/invitedby/wake4jake1672.
