You are welcome. The best part with Kiva is that you get $25 for free to help with. I already helped a mexican family who have a small business.

What a great charity! I would not have known about it without this post. Thanks again Chris for the wonderful work you
did on this. I will definitely donate in the memory of my Mexican friend Adon who struggled in this country for many years.
Please, if you are reading this article, share it with your friends!

Thank you Deborah. One of my friends in another network show me Kiva. Because they offered a free $25 to help I started to do so. When the money came back I invested myself $25 to help. You can chose yourself which person or group you want to loan the money. I really like the idea of this site.

I did too, I like the idea of being able to pick a person to help. I really believe one person at a time we could all make a difference.

Great post... I sincerely hope you will help a lot of needy people and I do believe that there are many people who are willing to share whatever they have. God Bless!

Thank you Vena. It may not as much as you think. I promoted Kiva on another network and even that it is free for the first $25 you get as a gift to make your first loan, most people did not join.
