I just joined Kiva.org today! I also found my first borrower, a lady in Nicaragua
who needs help with getting her daughter to university.
Although I'd think Kiva is well-known here already, I was a little surprised to discover that I couldn't find our own lender group on Kiva, and no mentions of one being started here on EVOKE. So, I took it upon myself to start one, which you can find here :- http://www.kiva.org/team/urgent_evoke
If you are on Kiva.org already please join!!! If you are not, please consider it. Kiva is a Microloan scheme which relies on 'lenders' in developed countries, who rather than donating to the poor, loan funds to people in various countries to give them the chance to succeed in their small businesses and support their families in a myriad of ways.
The smallest amount you can loan to someone is $25 (around £16 in GBP), and this would make a perfect response to any ACT2, ACT4 or ACT5 missions you are struggling to fulfill. If you're new to Kiva please read their terms and conditions when signing up.
I hope that opening this group doesn't cause any problems with the owners/admin of EVOKE - if there is a problem please let me know and I'll transfer 'captainhood' over to a more suitable person.
