Kiva Updates

Kiva is an awesome micro-lending group that allows people all over the world to give a helping hand and allow people to better their lives. I love it because its a hand up and not a hand out. To date I've taken the same $150 and turned it into $700 by re-lending it out once a loan was repaid.

New Loans:
Deiver is a person who is characterized by having worked hard for a great part of his life. Married, and with an 11-year-old son, Deiver works as a foreman at an estate that is close to his house. He also works independently - he has livestock that produce some extra income for him. Deiver dreams that his son can have access to a good education. In addition, he wants his family to have a better quality of life than that which they can obtain now.

Deiver has raised livestock for a long time, and thanks to the experience that he has acquired, his cattle are known for their good quality. Deiver now has some cattle which he has already sold through an agreement that he made with a customer. For this reason, he needs to begin raising some new ones. This is why Deiver is looking to purchase these new cattle to begin raising them; nevertheless, he doesn't have sufficient capital now, so he hopes that a loan will offer him the possibility of buying the cattle to raise them and be able to sell a good quality product to his customers.

Deiver hopes that his business will not end, but that he can continue increasing his sales. In this way, he will be able to continue generating sufficient income to offer his son a better quality of life.
