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 December 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 September and October look here.

And here are the rules how to add an item.
For every loan you make or made (from 1st of November to 31th of December 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.

Soekhdew is 39 years old and has a family with three children. He works hard and does rice cultivation. To make ends meet for his family, he also works for other rice farmers as a field worker and occasionally even does fishing.

With the support of Seva MFI, he bought his tractor and expanded his rice areas. His loans are repaid fully.

He applied for a new loan of SRD 10,000 (Surinamese dollars) to purchase fertilizers and pesticides.

My first loan in a while, went to Anastase in Rwanda. Trying to loan to different countries each time, and mine was the loan that tipped the total over to completion, first time I've done that.



Anastase is 43 years old. He has requested a Kiva loan to pay labor costs and buy fertilizers during his maize production. He needs to buy fertilizer in order to increase his production. With profits from his farming, he wishes to invest in his business so that in the future, he can acquire machines and tractors that will enhance his farming capacity. In phase three he hopes to have the resources for a Family Growth Action.

Mostly my loans go to the agriculture and food sector,
but this time I picked two different loans to fill some blank spots on my map.

Albertina from Mozambique will use the loan to purchase construction supplies such as cement, sand, rods, beams and nails.

AS OF THIS POSTING, THERE ARE ONLY 2 DAYS LEFT TO FUND THIS LOAN AND IT IS AT ONLY 27% - CAN YOU HELP?

More details at http://www.kiva.org/lend/626245

"The loan that she is requesting is for the purchase of 4 boxes of tomatoes, 2 sacks of potatoes, 2 boxes of chiles, 3 quintals of corn, 2 quintals of beans and 2 quintals of sugar to stock her store.

She wishes to grow economically to maintain her store and restaurant in order to move her business ahead. For her family, she hopes that her son will graduate with his doctorate in medicine."

This one is from "fresh money", I have almost enough re-lending credit to do another loan this month. And, I do have some spare money in my account and it's the season of giving, so I'll either do bonus loans next month, or give a few gift cards to my friends to (hopefully) get them started.

Well, since my brother made his 1st Kiva loan, I had $25 to lend. And I didn't realize it expired in a week, so I'm glad I checked in today!

The loan information is here - http://www.kiva.org/lend/625219

This one is only 14% funded as of this posting. I'm not sure how long it has to go, and it is in the "Expiring soon" category. This is the borrower's 3rd loan and he has a good repayment history. And I'm a big fan of lending to people who help feed the world (or at least their local community).

Hey, I'm feeling generous today. It must be the holiday spirit.

This loan is at http://www.kiva.org/lend/625205 (49% raised as of this posting). The last one covered meat on the table, this one covers fruits and vegetables. Between the 2, there's a good, healthy, low carb meal in the making!

Hey, I couldn't just piggyback on one loan today, could I? Well, maybe I could. However, instead I made a 2nd loan. This one will help Cholponkan from Kyrgyzstan (say that 5 times fast!) buy steers and heifers for fattening and reselling. She's going to use some of her profits to help pay for her son's wedding, too. That's a nice mom.

After making 2 loans yesterday, I received some repayments today that put me over the magical $28.75 mark, so I made a re-lend loan today. With my focus on eating more natural foods and no grains, I am also directing my loans that way. Valeriane is using the funds to start a greenhouse to grow greens (duh) in the winter and cucumbers and tomatoes (for a nice cucumber-tomato salad) in the summer.

http://www.kiva.org/lend/627194

This gives me 20 loans outstanding now. I'm going to pat myself on the back a bit for at least doubling my loans outstanding. Only one is delinquent. It's 96% repaid, and the guy just hasn't been able to make the last payment. I hope he's doing okay. I'm not worried about the potential loss ($0.91), more worried about the debtor.
