This information is copied from the KIVA site where I selected Sophary as a loan recipient. If you are not familiar with KIVA, I encourage you to read about this program. As a lender you can, with a very small amount of money, make it possible for impoverished but hard working people to improve their standard of living by helping them in their businesses. As my partners repay their loans I am able to make additional loans to new entrepreneurs. See www.kiva.com and consider becoming a lender. It feels good!
