It’s been a while since I organized the Garage Sale for Kiva with some women from church. Starting with only $300 in proceeds from the sale, we’ve been able to loan the same money again and again over the last 4+ years, empowering over 71 women in 32 countries through Kiva’s microfinance program It’s pretty amazing what our discarded stuff has been able to accomplish.
