If you have ever wanted to try Kiva, there is a great chance now. Kiva is allowing free trials where you can load $25 to a woman entrepreneur without you having to spend a dime. Here is the link: http://www.kiva.org/ladieshomejournal
What is Kiva you ask? This is how they describe themselves on the website:
Kiva is a non-profit organization working to alleviate poverty by connecting people through lending. Kiva lets individuals lend as little as $25 to help create opportunity around the world.
I can say with experience — loaning to people does make you feel better. It is great knowing that you have made a difference in someone’s life.
Since I have used Kiva for a while I can’t use the free trial. But this is great for everyone who never used it before. Try it! You will probably love it. And, if you don’t, it wouldn’t have cost you anything.
