Coffee Entrepreneurs @ Kiva


I loaned a little money back in August through third world microlender Kiva. I picked a couple of folks who dealt with the coffee in one way or another. It’s a pretty cool way to help a fellow entrepreneur get started or get a leg up.

Just got an update on the loan repayment and thought I’d pass it along as an encouragement to the rest of you.

For barely a drop in the American economical bucket you can pick an entrepreneur in an area that you’re passionate about and help them out.
