Though I have joined under your name and have put a banner on my blog, I have not been very active yet. But this will come soon, as soon as I have more time.

I think Kiva is a great idea as one can help and get people started in their project with small amounts.

Great to hear that you are a Kiva fan! If you (or your friends / family) are interested in getting more involved with Kiva, we have two core volunteer programs:

• Kiva Fellows Program: Individuals spend 10 weeks to one year with a microfinance institution in a developing country, chronicling the lives of the working poor and assisting the microfinance institutions to maximize their relationship with Kiva. (

• Kiva Translation Program: Volunteering from their own homes, individuals take entrepreneurs’ loan profiles written in the local language and translate to English, which are then posted for lending on Kiva Translators help bring the entrepreneurs' stories to life for potential lenders. (

** Languages needed include: Bahasa Indonesia, French, Mongolian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Vietnamese.
