I tried to find a way to support the people in the countries I visit. I was looking for an organization where they help people a step further in life with investments in their businesses or education.
What is Kiva?
My friend Henny from Holland has sent me an e-mail in 2013; I never forgot that one. It was a Kiva coupon to invest in businesses around the world for people who need it. Like a farmer in Myanmar, a shop owner in Bolivia or a student in the Philippines. With the micro credit from Kiva they can make more money out of their business or a better job when they finish school.
” Loans that change lives “
Kiva is for me the right platform to support projects I can choose. For every new country on my world trip (I’ve never been before) I’ll add $25 to my Kiva account and support entrepreneurs or students around the world who need it.
When there is a project in the country, I visit I’ll support a project in that country. When there is no project, I’ll support another project in the world. Countries visited: China, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Singapore and Australia*.
*Every month I work in Australia, I will support Kiva with $25.
(June, July, August, September, October)
Total in my Kiva account.
22x $25 = $550
Some people are not rich they only have money.
Hopefully, I can visit a lot of countries and support Kiva!
