Friends of Bob Harris, the team I'm honored to "captain" (which means mostly just cheer while everybody else does cool stuff) at Kiva.org, just blew past the $65,000 mark for December — and over $100,000 total in the last two months of 2010.
[singlepic id=12 w=320 h=240 float=right] That money is lent – not donated — to doctors, clinics, farmers, and thousands of other deserving small enterprises in more than 50 developing countries worldwide.
This means that the 267 members (and counting) of our team get paid back about 99 percent of the time, then have the opportunity to reinvest, over and over again, while helping build economies all over the world.
It's a kick and an honor to be a part of this, and I'm loving the work of writing this book.
