Kiva Lender Teri
Clarksville, TN, United States
I loan because:
May God bless you with discomfort --
At easy answers, half-truths, and superficial relationships
So that you may live deep within your heart.
May God bless you with anger --
At injustice, oppression, and exploitation of people,
So that you may work for justice, freedom and peace.
May God bless you with tears --
To shed for those who suffer pain, rejection, hunger and war,
So that you may reach out your hand to comfort them
To turn their pain into joy.
And may God bless you with foolishness --
To believe that you can make a difference in the world,
So that you can do what others claim cannot be done
To bring justice and kindness to all our children, and the poor.
My goal is to fund 1 Kiva loan a month for a year. In addition to that, all repayments will be turned back into new loans. I'm excited to see what my investment of $300 will do over the years!
The above was written in Jan 2009. It is now May 2012... those 12 loans totalling $300 have turned into 39 loans totalling $975!!
