Thank you, thank you!!

I appreciate those of you who participated in my Kiva give-away. If you want to be a part of the drawing, you still have a chance. I'm going to randomly pick a winner Sunday night. So come on, do it!!

I decided it would be fun for you to see a little more clearly how Kiva works. Click on this, and you can see the entrepreneur to whom we loaned. You can see her business, what she's using the loan to purchase, how much of the loan she has already paid back, and more. We loaned to her in October and we've already been paid back 20% of the loan. And once it is all repaid, we can turn around and "re-loan" it to another entrepreneur. What a powerful $25!

The more I know about Kiva, the more excited I get. It is REALLY a great idea. I wish I had thought of it. :)
