Second Free Microloan Funded!


We passed the $50 mark today which means that we had enough money to fund the second microloan here. This one went to Edirisa Bukenya Group who runs a general store in Uganda:

It’s great to see that we have been able to fund another microloan and hopefully there will be many more in the near future. You can follow all the microloans that we give out at the FreeMicroloan Kiva Page.

Thank you for the support and the participation in doing small things to make the world a little better. I look forward to reading you continued comments and hope that you’ll continue to spread the word to your friends and family. Don’t forget to sign up for the rss feed (and add an extra 25 cents to fund loans) if you haven’t done so already. I look forward to giving out more loans in the weeks to come.

    I’m glad you were able to find a loan today since there were relatively few available on the site.

    It’s great that you found a 3-month loan, which means you won’t have to wait long before you loan the same money to someone else. Thanks for inviting us to play a small role in all of this!

    Ron took the words right out of my mouth. We just received this months major payout of repayments and so there has been a ‘run’ on the available loans – but not to worry, there is always someone coming up that needs help. Check kiva.org every day and see all those wonderful people. jan

    I also forgot…

    For anyone who hasn’t checked out Kiva yet, ThinkMTV is giving away a free $25 gift certificate to fund a loan.

    The terms and conditions state the gift certificates expire April 29, 2009, so I think the offer is still good.

    Here’s the link:
