This one just seemed a really good idea for loaning my money to.

Oo yes, that does look like a good one. Today I've chosen my donatees based on their names (although I did filter by agriculture):

Aladin from Azerbaijan http://www.kiva.org/lend/353422

Peace from Uganda http://www.kiva.org/lend/358020 I hope the loan cheers her up a bit.

http://www.kiva.org/lend/367133?_te=ty Sokchea in Cambodia - these women look like they are lovely, tiny, and they will probably outlive me.

http://www.kiva.org/lend/354821?_te=ty A group in Uganda - they look like a nice bunch of people.

Apparently I have now sent out 51 loans!

I suspect that being very stubborn can improve your life expectancy. I can imagine the Grim Reaper being a bit afraid of them.

It almost feels mean to ask for your money back, but I've made over 50 loans now, so those returned loans are helping people many times over smile.gif

It is a very prretty sewing machine and I did want to donate to him but I already have one long loan so couldn't afford to loan to him to if I wanted to keep the money moving.

Boo! One of my loans to Afghanistan has defaulted, leaving me all of about $7 out of pocket! Scandal! biggrin.gif

I think that's the second default out of 52 loans. I think I can live with that.

For some reason I complete missed the email telling me my first loan has been completely repaid! Woohoo!

http://www.kiva.org/lend/397349 Chose him because it's an agriculture one, and I liked his story. That and it's his second loan, which I think shows commitment.
http://www.kiva.org/lend/403327 Chose her because I thought I should pick one of the lesser-developed countries, and apparently there were only 10 loans in Thailand.

I just got a bunch repaid so could loan again.

I chose:

She just looked so happy and it's always good to loan to someone who needs a fryer.

I've been a bit lax in keeping up with re-lending my money, so today I made six loans!

My favourite was to this lady: http://www.kiva.org/lend/448904

The look on her face just says 'Yes. I have chickens. You want to take my photo. If you must, then do so; such is life.'
