Today I made my 100th micro loan on Kiva.org . I joined Kiva in July 2007 and today I have $275 across 15 active loans, so I’m one of those people with a minimal fund who re-loan as soon as there’s enough repayment.
Here are some stats from my portfolio:
Gender: 65% female, 35% male.
54 countries. Top 5: Tajikistan, Peru, Kyrgyzstan, Cambodia, Paraguay.
13 sectors. Top 5: food, agriculture, retail, clothing, construction.
73 field partners.
Map view of portfolio distribution, darker green = more loans.
Hey I just met you, this is crazy, but let’s make the world a better place, so join Kiva, maybe?
