This morning I got an e-mail from Kiva informing me that one of my Kiva Loans had been paid off in full. Gustava Siaina had finished paying off her one year loan, and I now had $25 to either redeem or re-invest.

Although Eric and I could probably use the money, $25 will make more of a difference somewhere else than here. I've been re-investing Kiva funds as soon as I get them, so I did a search for more businesses and eventually settled on Hosiyat Kambarova of Tajikistan. As of this writing, she's still fundraising, so if you want to join Kiva and share the risk with me you can put in a small bit for her. Note: if the Kiva banner below this paragraph shows someone other than Hosiyat, then her loan has been fully funded!
