On a recent trip to Vietnam I saw a woman selling roasted corn on the street cooked on a stove contrived from a cookie tin and a few coat hangers... the corn was delicious. It reminded me that the poor living in under developed economies have to be ingenious entrepreneurs just to survive. Kiva gives this spirit traction to grow from survival to development. I am grateful for the opportunity to help and thank Kiva for making it so incredibly EASY!
