Try Something New #1: Kiva Micro-Financing

Try Something New #1: Kiva Micro-Financing

I’m starting a new “Try Something New” project where every week I will look for something new to do with the simple aim of improving lives. This can be anything from doing something different for myself, trying a new service or simply just helping someone.

For this week, I signed up to help 4 individuals/groups on Kiva by providing them with a US$25 micro-loan each.
