Playing it Forward

With all the unrest, violence and uncertainty in today's world, how can one person make a difference? The tragic loss of innocent lives in Barcelona, Nice, Paris, Manchester and so many other places is heart-breaking. While expressing his and the world community's deepest concolences to the victims' families and the injured survivors, the Prime Minister of Spain resolutely said that we are stronger together standing against such acts.

As with the rest of the world, we offer our most profound condolences and prayers to each one who has been touched by this tragedy. The most urgent need in Barecelona right now is for blood. But here are other ways to help: Barcelona

Trying to understand the hatred that causes one to take the lives of and injure so many innocents can cause us to lose faith in humanity. Yet in our morning inbox was a message of hope and a...  Read More

Thank You and Continued Best Wishes to these Entrepreneurs!

Wow! Yesterday we received enough repayments on Kiva Micro Loans to be able to fund another small $25 loan for a dedicated Single Mom, Maria Teresa, in Ecuador (her story is below after the others whose payment helped to fund her loan). Today we got even more exciting notices, so will be able to fund yet another amazing small business person or group, just like us! 

May their businesses keep growing as they keep inspiring so many with their tenacious spirit, determination and creativity!

Big Cheers & Thanks to These Savvy Entrepreneurs!

Update:

  Update from Armenia
1204682.jpg

This update on your loan to Hrayr was written by Kiva's Field Partner.

Just over 3 years ago, you helped to fund Hrayr's $600 loan which helped him purchase a calf and forage adding to his existing cattle breeding activities.
Hrayr works hard to support his mother and is now in a stronger financial position following the expansion of his business.
Hrayr is very grateful to everyone who gave him this opportunity and has asked Kiva to express his thanks to you all.

Yesterday, we were able to reinvest money that these great people and others repaid on Kiva...  Read More

Eva - Guru Fisherman

Eva
Eva, 53, leads Arrecifes de Kino, a cooperative engaged in sustainable pen shell fishing.  

Pen shells live buried in sandy bottoms of the Gulf of California and are harvested by divers for their abductor muscles or scallops known as “callo de hacha”. Pen shell divers use a type of hookah compressor, hooks, and a small boat (panga) equipped with an outboard motor. The fishing season lasts the whole year round, but the best months are from October to June. 

Eva is asking for 80,000 pesos to use as working capital during the high season. She will use part of the loan to pay native Seri fishermen for the scallops they harvest.

Just 5 Seconds - What Happens in the Blink of An Eye Around the World

1...2...3...4...5...
It might have taken you that much time to load this post. Little were you aware, though, that during this short period of time, an unimaginable amount of action has happened around the world. People have lost their lives, babies were born, and lightning might have struck somewhere on Earth. You might have been contributing to these actions yourself. With a huge population of about 7 billion people in the world today, 5 seconds can mean a lot. These remarkable facts and figures illustrate more or less what happens in just a few moments of time.

Hostage Recovery - Austin Tice by Sen. John Cornyn

John Cornyn, United States Senate for Texas

THE LONESTAR WEEKLY

A little more than three years ago, Houston-native Austin Tice was taken captive in Syria.  His many accolades include Eagle Scout, Marine, and journalist, but his more important titles are friend, brother, and son.

Austin's family is not just counting the days and minutes he's been gone, but theyre counting the milestones missed over the past three years, too.

I renew my call for Austin's immediate release by his captors and strongly urge the Obama Administration to utilize all possible means necessary to bring Austin home safely.  Ive recently introduced legislation establishing an Interagency Hostage Recovery Coordinator to create a unified government response to hostage situations like...  Read More

Amazing Seniors!

Wow! A repeat, but a super timely lesson for us...and perhaps for you as well!
The Golden Years (and the ones getting there) are what you make them, it seems!
Summer Heat is no excuse for lagging energies and lower productivity!
