After watching Frontline/World this week, I hopped on the Kiva webvsite intending to spend $100. But my donations kept not showing up on my portfolio page, so I kept resubmitting, so I wound up actually donating $175. A good thing, probably.
So it is my distinct honor to introduce you to the recipients of my initial foray into venture capitalism:
Novrasta Tagiyeva, Azerbaijan
Jocqueson Alexi, Haiti
Previlus Adeline, Haiti
Rosenie Louis, Haiti
Alejandrina Contreras, Honduras
John kipkoech Tallam, Kenya
I can see myself doing this often. I'd like to have a monthly allotment for this sort of thing. And I think it's very doable.
