Making a Kiva loan is something I’ve procrastinated on for years. I don’t have a clue why. I thought it was brilliant from the start. I had the money, and I know the micro loans system is changing the world person by person.
I needed one of my own productivity experiments to finally make my first loan. I chose it as a reward for me, to reward myself for finishing something I had procastinated on. But… even after I’d deserved my reward, it took me months to make that first loan. It was only when a facebook friend posted a link that I finally did it. Apparently I needed a clickable link before I took that first step. Ouch.
I will not let that happen again. Today, as I went for a walk, I realised I can easily decide when to make my next loan. Each time a new client signs up for my services, I will make a new Kiva loan. When an old loan gets repaid, I will reinvest it. This way, growing my business will help others to grow theirs too.
I’m not sharing this because I hope this makes you more interested in my business. I’m sharing it because I hope you’ll think about making a Kiva loan too. If you can’t afford the money, you can always share their good work through social media.
If, like me, a clickable link is all you need, click here.
I’m also curious to hear about other ways that people have tied their businesses to charity in a way that really suits them. Please share, you may inspire others!
