You never know.
A few years ago I found Kiva. For those of you that don't know what it is here is a quick summary. You loan someone money that Kiva has determined needs help. Over a period of time they pay you back and you are free to take your money and move on or reinvest.
Many months ago I loaned $25.00 to a gentleman in Lebanon to help with his business. Kiva notified me that he had repaid the loan. I chose to reinvest and I went through the list of people needing a loan for their various ventures. I selected a woman in Africa and as I clicked to reinvest my $25.00 I was notified that this woman now had her complete loan and was able to move forward with her business.
Sometimes we don't always get to see what a difference we make in someone's life. Thanks to Kiva I was able to.
