Humanists can help with loans

I would like to draw your attention to my posting in the Positve Humanism Forum about the Atheists, Agnostics, Skeptics, Freethinkers, Secular Humanists and the Non-Religious Team at KIVA http://www.kiva.org/

I meant to respond to this ages ago.

This looks like an excellent cause. You give them money and if you're lucky you get all of it back. But what you also get back is the knowledge that you've made a real difference. Priceless.

There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

I have just had an email saying my first loan has been repaid and is available to relend or withdraw.

The group, Little Smiles, is represented by Mrs. Zulema. She is single with three children, just as the other women of the group are mothers with children under the age of five. The members are young, dynamic, responsible, and have goals for advancement. A majority of the group sells different types of products such as chicken, cereals, fabric, cosmetics. Others bake bread, sew clothes, and provide public transportation. The members have plenty of experience in their areas, so they know how to gain a competitive edge in the market. In general, the members don't have experience working in these types of groups, and this is their first microloan, but they feel capable of fulfilling their responsibility to Kiva partner Fundacion Agrocapital and to the other members of the group. This loan will lead to increased income and (the purchase of) more products to sell and improve the members' ability to do business.

Hi Chris

I've been part of kiva for a while now too (http://www.kiva.org/lender/richardcraig )
Such a great way to help others while all the money that would sit in your bank account earning barely 0.1% interest is only helping the banks :angry:
