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 June 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 May to 30th of June 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 (edited: This was only a temporarly campaign) . Make sure you join our team before you make the loan.

Today I made a loan to the Minasmayo De Garavito Group from peru.
http://www.kiva.org/lend/686228



A portion of Minasmayo De Garavito Group's $5,050 loan helps a member to purchase guinea pigs, hens, and food for the guinea pigs and hens.

I´ve chosen a loan in the agriculture sector again, as I think having something to eat is one of the most basic needs.

Found this thread, and signed up at Kiva. My first loan is to Maria Floridalva, who at 30, has 3 children (oldest 19), and is trying to keep afloat selling party decorations and accessories.

http://www.kiva.org/lend/700213



I selected this as I know a number of people from Ecuador that struggle on a daily basis to keep food on the tables for their families.

I bacame aware of this loan, because another team member supported it.
And as I usually support loans in the agriculture and food sector and as I had some repayments waiting to be allocated again I joined her.

I tend to loan towards a couple different things, but I will always loan towards bees. More bees is a great idea, and I fully support apiaries and bee keepers.

Today I made a loan to help Josefina from Timor-Leste to buy beer, soy sauce and fish.



http://www.kiva.org/lend/713354

No, I didn´t pick this loan because I love bear but just because it was the first loan in Timor-Leste I came across.
And I chose Timor-Leste as the people there have suffered a lot und Indonesian occupation and today still have to struggle to return to a rather normal system of government and bussiness.

I made a loan to the Cheang's Group from Cambodia.
They need the loan helps a member to buy fertilizer and seeds for her farmland.

http://www.kiva.org/lend/707970


I got aware of this group because two other team members (Magnus and Aleksander) already made a loan and as I usually make loans in the agriculture sector I joined them.
So we are the top contributing team to this loan now.
And as only a third of the loan is funded yet, there is time and spcae for others to joun us.

Thats why I picked TEAMPOWER as the item for this entry.

Today I made a loan to Cirila Luisa in Peru, to help her buy materials for her daughter's education.

With the struggles women face all over the world in the headlines, I felt it important to help another woman give her daughter the tools to open doors to expanded opportunities.

I know nothing about this game, and what a great name. Now, on to the loan.



Anara is 32 years old, and married with two children. She has a high school education. Anara has raised livestock since 1990, starting with an initial purchase of cattle for 7,000 KGS.

Thanks to her hard work, she now has two dairy cows, 13 sheep and two horses. Her monthly income from selling milk and dairy products is more than 15,000 KGS.

Anara took a loan of 40,000 KGS from micro-finance bank, Bai-Tushum, to buy another cow in the further development of her business. She plans to invest the extra income to expand her herd and hopes to save enough money to improve their living conditions.

I wasn't expecting to make a loan this month, but I got an unexpected early repayment on another loan so was able to after all.

We travelled to Vietnam earlier this year, so I wanted to make a loan to help someone in that beautiful country.

***

Mrs. Mùa works in agriculture, farming poultry and cattle. Mùa is 43 years old and she is married with two children. Mùa lives with her two dependents in Nong Cong district, in a rural town in Thanh Hoa province.

In 2010, Mùa joined Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women to improve her business. Mùa has successfully repaid one loan from Thanh Hoa Fund for Poor Women. Mùa has been involved in this business for more than 10 years. The main hardship that Mùa faces in her life is not having a clean water system and a hygienic latrine. She is requesting a loan to buy equipment for a toilet and bathroom.

In the future, Mùa hopes to make enough money to provide for her kids, for her children to find a good job, and to be able to buy more supplies and equipment for her business.

My probably last loan for this month goes to Alberto from Belize.
He needs the money to purchase grafted cacao seedlings.

There are two reasons that made me picked this loan.
I usually make loans in the agriculture sector as I think it meeets one of the most basic needs. And I´ve never made a loan to Belize before, so I could fill another blak spot on my map.
