Transportation in Nicaragua
I made a loan today through Kiva.org to Fransisico Javier Mendoza Balmceda for his transportation business. The loan is long - 22 months and for a large amount ($1200). I am guessing this loan will take longer to fund. But Kiva only has 38 loans right now, and only had 2 yesterday.
The Kiva statistics are a bit astounding to me, because I remember when Kiva loaned its first million, and now it lends 3/4 of a million each week. Lenders are counted by the second.
I hope Education Generation takes off that way and we start significantly changing the literacy rates in the world. I just contributed to the education of Anne Anyago in Kenya.
I have HOPE, despite all the obsticles.
