Dana and I just recently loaned money to two people through Kiva. I have to watch myself as I find it very easy to spend a lot of time looking through everyone's profiles. The stories of people in impoverished nations who just want a chance to make a better living and provide for their families is really heartwarming.
This is Alfred who lives in Togo. He's wanting to use the $1000 USD that will be loaned to him to add to the size of his pig shelter. He also wants to start breeding different animals for sale.
$25 from me, combined with money from other loaners, is a small way to help Alfred and his family out. I only wish I could visit him! :)
