I did 91 microloans with Kiva.org making dreams come true!
Dec 30, 2021
I am a dreamer. And like all dreamers I needed mentors to show me how they make their dreams come true. Now I have 91 sisters and mentors. These are women who show me how they make a lot from very little. They dream, plan, account, create, sell, invest, re-invest on a small scale. And they create their own success. Each and every sister repays her microloan, so that another sister can have an opportunity to reach her idea, to live her dream. And also the same sisters reborrow and grow their ideas and dreams even further, bigger and better. That's how 1 microloan became 91 microloans. It's a cycle of support.
We are not handing out cans of tuna, bags of flour and bottles of oil. We are providing a bigger possibility, which will be handed right back so the next person will also have a possibility. What possibility? The possibility of the dream of their own choice to be manifested by their own energy and plan, fueled by their own belief and dream.
Charity is a first response. Self employment creates self worth, self esteem and independence. There are thousands of women who embrace getting a \"leg up\" instead of just a \"hand out\". 91 women have shown me personally that building yourself from the ground up, with very little, can do a lot. Micro financing (microloans) continues to be their answer. I have participated 91 times. Each time they show me that my dreams can also come true.
Thank you to the community of Borrowers & Lenders at Kiva.org!
