Kiva: The Gift That Keeps On Giving {Charity Garage Sale Update}

by This is Carrie on February 18, 2013

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.

Loans made: 71
Total amount lent: $1,825
Total amount repaid: $1633
Total amount lost: $10

32 countries: Cambodia, Bolivia, Pakistan, Tanzania, Togo, Mexico, Phillipines, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Lebanon, Mongolia, Ghana, Paraguay, Peru, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Viet Nam, South Sudan, Mali, Senegal, Chile, Armenia, United States, Ukraine, Burundi, Rwanda, Jordan, Kenya, Israel, Palestine, Kyrgyzstan, Dominican Republic.

Hey Carrie, thanks so much for the follow-up on your Kiva garage sale! We absolutely loved the idea, and were thrilled to see that you recycled the money so many times. Seriously awesome job :)
