This list is created to show the world what our Kiva Team BoardGameGeek.Com ( http://www.kiva.org/team/boardgamegeek/ ) does to support people in need around the world.

Further we want to reward the generosity of our members with some GeekGold.

At the end of October I will randomly select one of the items added to this list for each of the pots specified below and give the Gold to the user who made the loan/added the item.

If you want to know more about the origin of this list, have a look at this thread.
The first list (September and October 2012) can be found here, for the list for Julyl and August look here.

And here are the rules how to add an item.
For every loan you make or made (from 1st of September to 30th of October 2013) on Kiva for the Team BoardGameGeek.Com you may add one item. Use either Outside the Scope of BGG or a game that is related to your loan. If you want, you can also make one list item for more than one loan, but this will reduce your chances to win, as every list item is one entry.

Tell us, who got your loan and what they need it for.
If you want, add a picture too. Further we would be glad if you tell us a little more, maybe the reasons why you give your money to the borrower or everything else you want to tell us about the loan.


For those who don´t know about Kiva and the concept of micro loans,
have a look at http://www.kiva.org/about .
You don´t need to spend money, you just lend it to someone who really needs it.

If you are not on Kiva yet, you can use one of the following links and you will be able to make a loan worth 25$ for free. Make sure you join our team before you make the loan.

My first loan this month goes to Edina Pual from South Sudan (world´s youngest nation).
http://www.kiva.org/lend/598526

She needs the money to buy fish to sell.

As usually, I picked a loan form the food or agriculture sector, because I think food is the most basic need (besides water).
And I chose a borrower from South Sudan, because it was a black spot on my loan map.

Martha Lorena has a business selling shoes in one of the markets in the city of Leon. She started as a mobile clothing vendor, and now has a stall where she sells all kinds of shoes and has been able to obtain more customers. She buys her product wholesale from businesses in the city of Masaya. She is a single mother of five adult children, none of whom are still under her care. She starts work at 5:30 am and finishes at 4:30 pm. Martha Lorena is requesting a loan in order to buy sandals, and to take advantage of the fact that there is greater demand for this product now and attract more customers. She dreams of keeping her business stocked with differents kinds and varieties of shoes.

I first became aware of Kiva through BGG, I knew about micro loans though.

I wanted to do something global and also to know where my help went and who needed it. I followed the link ( thankyou Markus) and donated...oh and joined the BGG team of course.

I havent been able to make another donation until now, as nearly all the money is paid back...I plan on more very soon.

If you are a little hesitant - dont be, it truly is a feel good thing to do.

my first loan was Tien from Vietnam http://www.kiva.org/lend/519370

Tanzania! This is the 25th country to which I have made a loan. I am now trying very hard not to duplicate countries until I run out of new ones.

This loan is for a laptop and parts for a music system. I can get behind that.

I typically look through the Arts and Entertainment sections first. Then I just list everything and see which loans are expiring soon. Then it comes down to getting new countries. This is my first loan to Honduras. Beauty supplies for a home business.

I decided to stay domestic with this one. Actually, this is my 1st USA loan. I really liked her mission, and since I've recently become a big fan of organic goods, so an organization helping to introduce children to them early on in life strikes a good chord with me.



Louise will use her $10,000 Kiva loan to furnish her preschool, purchase necessary educational equipment and cover initial payroll for each of the instructors. In addition, these funds will ensure that only the highest quality organic local foods are provided for her students.

She hopes that her business will continue to take root and that her work will create a positive impact in the lives of her students. Although Louise currently has a license for six students, she will be moving in October to a new location that will accommodate over twenty. When asked about her future dreams, she joked, “Maybe I have to start an elementary school next!”

There's a lot more to her story - Read it at http://www.kiva.org/lend/611627

I've contributed two new loans for the BGG Team, the first being http://www.kiva.org/lend/596239

The Rozaffa group in Albania which provides stable employment and income to more than 120 women in rural areas, and through workshops and arranging sales with fair pricing helps preserve the skills and culture of their traditional handcrafts.

They are fully funded ..




The second loan is http://www.kiva.org/lend/620480 for the La Frontera Group in Guatemala
who are wanting to buy raw materials to make soap (a business the group leader started 5yrs ago) .. They are so far only 17% funded ..

First of all, I chose this game because it's relevant and because people play it in my game group....crazy, crazy people.



This one was done with my Kiva balance, which is good for my cash flow (although I may make yet another loan next week). It was the last loan needed to fully fund this, the 1st time I've ever done that.

Zam, a single mother of four children, all of whom are in school, resides in her own house, and the family has access to electricity but not to piped water. Her monthly expenses includes school fees and food.

Working seven days a week, Zam has been operating a stall selling green bananas at the market for 15 years. Her major challenges include thieves and seasonality.

Zam has requested a loan of Uganda shillings 1,500,000 from MCDT-SACCO to buy more bunches of green bananas. She would like to start growing bananas and also educate her children up to the university level.

I was just bored at the office today and had some money burning a hole in my bank account. So I decided to put it to good use.



Victoria makes a living selling vegetables and makes a little through cattle raising. With the little she makes from her crops and from the sales in her shop, she must cover the costs of food, schooling, and paying the bills. Victoria's husband does not help with costs as he works in the city.

Victoria needs this loan to buy improved seeds for vegetables. These seeds will help her save time as they do not need watering often and they grow more quickly. The ground will not deteriorate as quickly with these seeds and they are good for the environment.

There's more to her story - Find it here: http://www.kiva.org/lend/617648
