It's Sunday night and I am fortunate enough to look forward to my work week. Over 7 years ago I was bit by the entrepreneurial bug and started Design To Market. We have been staging Cincinnati homes for over 7 years and at last count have staged over 1,000 homes. I love what I do and I love what it lets me do! Tonight I just made my 55th loan to Kiva. According to Kiva's website they:
"empower individuals to lend to an entrepreneur across the globe. By combining microfinance with the Internet, Kiva is creating a global community of people connected through lending."
Thanks to my friend Michelle Minch with Moving Mountains Design who told me about Kiva's great work several years ago, I have been supporting entrepreneurs all over the globe with a consistent stream of small loans to entrepreneurs in countries where it is tough to run businesses because of limited access to capital. Last month I even added the US as a country where I am supporting entrepreneurs through Kiva. The only return a lender gets is the satisfaction that they are helping a fellow small business owners and the assurance that there is a 95% chance that the loan will be paid back and that it can be reloaned to someone else. In my book that is a great return!
If you are as fortunate as I have been in working hard and being sucessful enough to lend a hand to a worthy organization...look around and find your passion and lend them a hand too!
Design To Market has been staging homes throughout Greater Cincinnati since 2004. For more information about our servies call us at 513-265-0952.
