I just contributed to another 5 loans at Kiva, the last ones I’ll do for 2011. That makes a total of 75 loans I’ve lent with Kiva over the twelve month period. I’ve contributed a total of $1,123.88 of my own money towards the loans. None of the loans I’ve contributed too have defaulted, and I’ve only lost $0.02 in total which was due to a currency conversation rate change.
Lending through Kiva has been my main ‘good deed’ for my 2011 year of helping others. I hope my small contribution has made a difference. I guess I’ll never know for sure. I won’t contributed as much next year but I will keep rolling the funds that are paid back into new loans so others can get the benefit too.
