Student loan through Vittana


I made my first student microloan through Vittana today. I made a loan to Munhtuya B So she can go to medical school in Mongolia.
I would never have been able to get any of my university degrees (including the Ph.D. from Yale) without the help of student loans. I am very grateful I lived in countries that offered them to students without credit.

And I'm grateful that I have the opportunity to help others with their dream.

I'm the communities manager at Vittana and just saw your post - it made my day. Thanks so much for your loan to Munhtuya.

Let me know if I can help answer any questions about what we do, and thanks for taking the time to document your efforts to change the world. Your blog is inspiring.

Thanks for your kind words. I just do what I can, and I'm documenting it so I can remember!
