Cambodia - wants to buy two dairy cows

This is the lady I lent $25 to this morning.

My first Kiva loan of $25 went to this fellow, who paid it back in small increments— around $2 per month:
Paraguay - added onto his bakery

After he paid back the $25, I re-lent it to this lady:

Peru - makes and sells rope

From now on I'm going to make a $25 loan on the first day of each month.
Check out Kiva; it's an interesting way to give people a hand up instead of a hand-out.
