Kiva Translations

February 7th, 2009 at 09:49 pm

Today I completed four more translations for http://www.kiva.org/about, and this makes 11 that I've done since the start of the year. I'm finding that I really love doing this work... It helps keep my Spanish skills fresh, but more importantly, I am touched and inspired by the stories of people who want to improve their lives through hard work.

Through Kiva, we can lend money to the working poor throughout the world and promote their economic independence. I've decided to add a line item on my monthly budget for Kiva, instead of just lending or donating from time to time. It's not a lot, maybe the cost of a lunch out, but it will make a difference for someone who just needs a chance.

    That's so great! I'm going to get into kiva loans once we have a little more room in our budget.

    I love reading about your work with Kiva. Once we start volunteering and learning more about the good works of an organization, we do tend to become donors, don't we? It has been the same for me.
