BootsnAll & Kiva

by Hydro on December 23, 2008    |    1 Comment

BootsnAll’s travel community is made up of a pretty cool bunch of people. Not only will they answer your travel questions with their combined wisdom, they’re also very conscious of the world around them and prepared to give a little back.

Kiva is an organisation that facilitates micro-lending to Developing World entrepreneurs. Over time, those entrepreneurs repay the loans. The minimum loan amount is $25 per individual, but it gets to be really powerful when individuals group together, such as the BootsnAll Travel Network Groupies.

If you’d like to get involved, join our group and then let us know about it on this forum thread (you have to be a member to see it).

Hey Hydro—thanks for turning me on to Kiva and the ‘BootsnAll Travel Network Groupies’ team on their site. As of my joining, the number of team members is now up to 28 and our total amount loaned has increased to US$1,650.00. Anyway. It’s a cool project. Thanks!
