Giving feels great... even if I'm broke

I'm broke off my ass this pay period and got a note saying my $25 Kiva loan to an African woman to start her softdrink business had been paid off in full.

Instead of cashing it out, I've decided to keep the love flowing and have loaned it now to a Cambodian couple with four children who are trying to buy land to open a grocery store. Awesome! :)

If you've never had the fun of spending $10-50 or more just to positively change someone's life somewhere else in the world, then you really need to check out Kiva! Something like 98% of the loans are repaid over a few months. It's awesome.
