We just updated our loans on www.KIVA.com, a microloan website that PADT has been a member of since 2007.

Kiva takes very small loans from people, pools them together, and makes  small loans to entrepreneurs around the world.  It is a great way to make a big difference in someones life with a small donation.

You know how much we love numbers here at PADT, so here are some about our Kiva loan activity:

Attention: The internal data of table “1” is corrupted!

It is interesting to read the little loan pages and understand a bit about what the applicants are trying to do and where they are coming from. You can see our loans on our lending page:

At first $1,500 seemed like a lot of money, but over the years it has gone a long way.  Who would have thought we would be involved in pig farming in the Philippines, a Peruvian Beauty Parlor, or a Cafe in Albania?

If you want to try it, make a loan through this invitation link.  When you make a loan, $25 gets added to PADT’s loan pool.
