Kiva loan to Lydia


I made a kiva loan today to a 'Lydia' in Honduras.

Miss Lidia Marina Solorzano sells general consumption products – she has a general store located in her house. Her general store is located on the route that heads to the beaches of Cedeño. She opens the stores every day at 5 in the morning and closes it at 9 at night. Besides her general store business, Lidia raises hens and has a pair of cows. She needs the loan to supply her business since currently she does not have very many products. She needs her income in order to get ahead with her business and support her family.

I made a donation to support my friends doing the 2010 AIDS walk. I think its a very noble cause, and I like to support my friends who support causes.
