Fact #161: Kiva credit!

Last February I made a loan on to a small business owner in Nigeria. I've gotten periodic updates on her business since then, and today I got an email telling me that she's fully repaid the loan.

The cool thing about Kiva is that every time you get a portion of your loan repaid, it goes into your Kiva account -- you can either take the money out of the account or re-lend it. So now I'm browsing the site looking for another business to lend to.

If you've got $25 (or more) burning a hole in your pocket, you can do the same thing! Tis the season!

Til tomorrow.
