I made a loan today to Eugenia Ogarcova in Ungheni, Moldova. I saw the picture and had to make the loan. I feel a strong connection with Moldovians, I think it is because they physically resemble my family. I am half Hungarian. I've been to the villages and towns my grandparents came from, and I am grateful that they made the trip. My grandfather came by himself at 14. I have cousins in Hungary about my age, and so I have an idea of what my life would have been like had my family stayed. Very different. I would be asking for Kiva loans, instead of giving them.
I feel blessed to be here, and I try to share my fortunes in life.
