Microstock for Microcredit

posted on 6th of july, 2009

I want to recruit you to my lending team, “Microstock for Microcredit“, on Kiva, a non-profit website that allows you to lend as little as $25 to a specific low-income entrepreneur across the globe. You choose who to lend to – whether a baker in Afghanistan, a goat herder in Uganda, a farmer in Peru, a restaurateur in Cambodia, or a tailor in Iraq – and as they repay the loan, you get your money back.

I want to loan a part of my microstock incomes and blog sponsoring in this project.

If you join my lending team, we can work together to alleviate poverty. Once you’re a part of the team, you can choose to have a future loan on Kiva “count” towards our team’s impact. The loan is still yours, and repayments still come to you – but you can also choose to have the loan show up in our team’s collective portfolio, so our team’s overall impact will grow!

Hi Peter, meanwhile you can join... when your incomes become "macro", you'll be able to make a loan! Thanks for your comment

Hello Roberto. I have heard of this venture and would like to invest personal funds into it. My micro stock funds have micro growth so I need to sell more pictures to use that income. Peter

Thanks Flowerpistol, hope could be a good "microproject".
P.S.: I think you can join the team all the same

This sounds like a nice idea. I actually just joined Kiva and did my first loan to a man for his motorcycle taxi business. I would join your team but with such a tiny portfolio it may be years before I get my first check! Good luck and glad to hear about others supporting Kiva!

Hi... it's not telepathy, I've just followed your suggestion ;-) (already answered in my blog). Thanks again!
