Do Good Spotlight: Kiva

If you’ve seen my LinkedIn posts, you’ll know I was very excited to receive a gift certificate of $100 as a thank you from someone I’d helped. But this was no ordinary gift certificate. It was a pre-paid “loan voucher” that enabled me to loan other businesses $100, in $25 increments, to help them achieve their goals. I “donated” my loans to a mix of small businesses. This was such a wonderful gift I wanted to share it in this week’s Do Good Spotlight. Do you know someone who would appreciate the gift of helping another business with a micro loan? Learn more here at Kiva. I was so happy with this, I made an extra donation to Kiva to support them.
