Your weekly Kiva:

Ama:

HERE.

(UPDATE: Good news, Ama's loan is now 100% funded. Check out Mireyda below - - she still needs funding.)

And Mireyda:

HERE.


I am intrigued by this statement about Mireyda on her loan profile:

She feels very happy as a customer of AFODENIC (the local Kiva partner that arrange and disperses the loans to community members), because she has always made her payments on time and she is sorry that some teachers are organized in the group called "Movement of No Payment", because they are affecting her credit rating and bringing shame to honest teachers. What is that about?

In related news, IKROM got enough money and the lending group has passed along his loan money so that he can start investing in more cattle.

Yay! Thanks for drawing attention to this... or anything that reminds us that even in a bad economy, we're all better off than 95% of the world.

Thank you for turning me on to this. My husband and I got involved with Donors Choose - which is another great way to contribute, fabulous actually. I showed him this site and he was really excited - we're going to pick some people to help. This is such a great way to give something back. Thanks D.

thanks for the reminder. I heard about this last year, too, and forgot all about it.
telling juxtaposition with the bankers partying on with taxpayers' money.

sickening, immoral, evil behaviour.
