Made three new Kiva loans today, using Kiva credits from past lenders.
Antoinette Yeye in Cotonou, Benin wants a loan to increase her restaurant business, she makes ready-made meals.
The Ternura Group is in Ayacucho, Peru and is a group of women (one called Julia) who want money for various enterprises. Since they all guarantee each other, I can be assured the money will get paid back.
The last loan I made was to Mexico, I thought about the Agents of Change and how I am trying to keep a significant part of my portfolio in Mexican loans 'cause they are close. So I chose a loan that was almost funded, to Cleotilde De La Rosa Mendoza for her concrete fence.
