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 April 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.
All the previous lists can be found at the Kiva Team BoardGameGeek.Com - Tell us about your loans and win some GeekGold - Subscription List.


And here are the rules how to add an item.
For every loan you make or made (from 1st of March to 30th of April 2014) 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.

All reality is a game. Physics at its most fundamental, the very fabric of our universe, results directly from the interaction of certain fairly simple rules, and chance; the same description may be applied to the best, most elegant and both intellec

Alexandrina lives in a town which is about 87 km from the capital. She is a business woman so she always finds ways to improve her business.

Alexandrina has a kiosk that she opened a year ago. She started to do business with her own working capital of $100. She is also selling bread, fried bananas and doughnuts, so she will use the loan to buy goods to keep in her store such as cane milk, biscuits, candies, sugar, coffee and flour.

Maternal health is everyone's health!



Miniver, 59, leads a women’s empowerment group out of the Light of Hope AIDS hospice in rural Zambia. She is a burgeoning entrepreneur and has innovated in areas ranging from menstrual hygiene to waste-based charcoal with support from the international development innovation network.

Miniver is requesting $800 worth of clean birth kits to be provided by Kiva partner ayzh. Each kit costs $4.00 to her and can be sold at a small profit in order to generate income and also provide safe equipment for mothers. The kits contain a sanitized clip, razor, gloves, soap, and a disposable mat. They enable an affordable alternative to the typical options available to mothers.

Miniver plans to harness the network she has built up through the women’s group in order to sell the kits. This opportunity will allow her to pursue her goals of helping people while also producing income for her family.

Yuriy lives and works in Melitopol (Ukraine). He rents a floor space in one of the local stores to sell fabric for lace curtains and fixtures. Yuriy has around 20 years of work experience in this field.

The loan helps Yuriy to purchase curtain lace, drapes, curtain rods and fixtures.

I assume I don´t have to explain why I picked a loan in the Ukraine this time.

I received a bunch of repayments over the last month, I think some were from loans paid off early, and that allowed me to make 3 loans today. The 1st goes to Ukraine.



Ivan has done several loans with Kiva in the past, so that makes him (to me) a lower risk even in a volatile area. He wants to use this loan for a coffee maker and new merchandise for his cafe.

This loan will help a group create a micro-solar power plant in their village and to improve 4 businesses and probably help enrich the community as a whole. A nice, green project.

Enough repayments this month to send the money back out to do more good stuff. It's gone to Orfa Lia in Colombia, she runs a truck stop and is going to use the money to spruce up the place and buy some new stock.

I usually try to choose a fun title that somehow relates to my loan, but this time the story was just too sad .. This is only 13% funded so please jump on board & help if you can ..

http://www.kiva.org/lend/693436



Zaruhi lost her first child when he was just new-born baby as the result of doctors’ incompetent and incorrect actions. Her second son was born with an innate disease of renal failure. Now he is 11 years old and needs an urgent kidney transplant since day-by-day he becomes weaker and looses hope.

In Armenia such operations are done on a very low level, since the medical equipment is far from being effective and modern. For people having such a disease, dialysis somehow lightens the problem, but in our country even this is in a very low level and now Zarui and her son are in a very desperate state.

Zaruhi does the impossible to keep alive her son with the help of very expensive medicines and injections and she is taking this loan amount for the purchase of just some part of these medicines.

Mesepi from Samoa operates her BBQ business selling to the public and people around her community. She has been doing this for four years. Mesepi has requested a loan to buy boxes of mutton flaps, sausages, chicken leg quarters, soya, onions, garlic, tomato sauce, plastic plates, foil, gas, and to pay school fees, and school registration.

Another green projects, this time to provide solar power to the homes of tea farmers in Kenya, replacing kerosene lamps and creating an overall better living environment.

I did this one out of loan repayments. Loan #29 for me (and still only 1 delinquent, with all but $0.91 repaid). It's about 50% funded, so jump on board if you'd like!
