Kiva Project Update: Our third loan

Hey Cromrades, I didn’t hear much from you with regard to our Kiva project, so I donated all the money to Invisible Children. Joking. But I didn’t have time to go through the Kiva.org website and really closely scrutinize the projects, so I just picked a couple at semi-random. This is why I need y’all …

Our first loan(s)

Cromrades, We have done a great thing today. We have stood in the face of great economic disparity, and unflinchingly taken a tiny step toward reducing it. The cry went up, Cromrades, and we answered it to the tune of 2 Kiva loans. The first, to Gulshan Mammadova in Azerbaijan: Gulshan needs 2000 AZN to …
