Kiva loans

Armandina lives in HUANCAYO, Peru and wants money to buy supplies for her embroidery business.

I joined many Kiva friends in the 25,000 loan - to Plamen Borisov in Vratza, Bulgaria. I think 27 of the 30 lenders are Kiva Friends.

I couldn't resist this loan this morning to the Hortencia Group from Ixtahuacán. Sololá, Guatemala. The women will primarily use their loans to buy raw material in order to make typical dresses and in order to purchase and sell them.

Canvassed for Obama this morning. Knocked on 48 doors.
