Peter & Linda, The answer  is YES!! I recently started and have placed two loans.  I am planning to add a loan per month in 2012.  This is a pfanntastic post about a pfanntastic organization.  I plan on re-blogging it soon. Kiva gift cards are also a great present to give.  You can learn more about them on at Kiva Cards.

Peter and Linda - It is through the efforts of like minded people that we can improve the world around us; one person, one business, one community, one country at a time.  It is the cumulative effect of those who in their own way offer a hand up not a hand out that is and will continue to make an exponential difference in the world. It matters not if a persons contribution is of a monetary nature or a commitment of time or energy it all adds up.
