Help stamp out hunger

Left some food in my mailbox today to help stamp out hunger. It's a yearly food drive done by the US post office. Mailpersons collect food directly from mailboxes.

Kiva loan to Belize

Made a loan today to Andrea from Belize.

Andrea is a new farmer who lives in the beautiful village of Indian Creek, in the Toledo district of southern Belize. She was inspired by other farmers who have benefited from the blossoming cacao industry in the area, and is excited to join the farming world. 

As a housewife with three children, Andrea is currently unemployed, and is eager to begin farming to become more self-sustaining. She has requested this loan to purchase cacao trees.

Andrea would like to send her kids to school using the revenue she generates from planting and selling cacao.
