Write that shit up on CB, yo. I went through the website and I’m definitely getting involved. I think it would gain access from 5-7 more people if’n you wrote it up.

I subscribe to the Truemors rss feed. Dumb Little Man suggested it for socially retarded folks like myself so we can have talking points in our interactions.

I saw the link, love me some micro loans, and checked it out. Seems real legit, good write ups, good partners. I tried using a gift card for $25 I had hanging around, but Paypal took $1, then tried charging the $25. So it got rejected. And cost me a dollar. What the fuck I am supposed to do with a $24 gift card?

When I gets some time, I’ll hit up the nice Pakistani woman looking to make sausage. I love me some sausage. The whole world deserves sausage. Meat grinders for all.

Hi!

I just made a loan to someone in the developing world using a revolutionary new website called Kiva.

You can go to Kiva’s website and lend to someone in the developing world who needs a loan for their business – like raising goats, selling vegetables at market or making bricks. Each loan has a picture of the entrepreneur, a description of their business and how they plan to use the loan so you know exactly how your money is being spent – and you get updates letting you know how the business is going. The best part is, when the entrepreneur pays back their loan you get your money back – and Kiva’s loans are managed by microfinance institutions on the ground who have a lot of experience doing this, so you can trust that your money is being handled responsibly.

I just made a loan to an entrepreneur named Abdusamad Samadov in Tajikistan. They still need another $1,100.00 to complete their loan request of $1,200.00 (you can loan as little as $25.00!). Help me get this business off the ground by clicking on the link below to make a loan to Abdusamad Samadov too:

http://kiva.org/app.php?page=businesses&action=about&id=15843&referralId=49190

It’s finally easy to actually do something about poverty – using Kiva I know exactly who my money is loaned to and what they’re using it for. And most of all, I know that I’m helping them build a sustainable business that will provide income to feed, clothe, house and educate their family long after my loan is paid back.

Join me in changing the world – one loan at a time.

Thanks!

Shane Corcoran
