Yes !!!! The women I have been loaning money to through Kiva now has her Loan of $750 completely funded. Francisca Quispe lives in an area of Peru where the annual household income is only $6715. She is a mother of ten and fifty eight years old. I choose Francisca because like me she is a potter. She only requested the loan in order to buy pottery supplies to keep her business going.
I have been wanting to get involved with Kiva for a long time. I finally have and find it to be a really wonderful organization for helping people who live in poor financial situations but want to work and develop their own business. I like the one on one relationship rather then giving to a large organization. It works for me ....and now I hope it will work for Francisca
