This week involves a return to Kiva. This time I was intrigued by a loan that had a 2X match from VMWare, the technology company. I didn't realise that company's had the option of matching specific loans. It's an interesting approach to encourage people like me but also to create a specific culture within the company. The specific loan I picked was a loan for to send Mu'ath back to school to finish his degree near Palestine.
As a side note, my first loan to Dutti was fully funded and will have its first monthly payment start to come back next month. I'm excited to see this loan start to come back and to see where the next loan will be. :)
