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 September 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 Apirl to 30st of June 2015) 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. Make sure you join our team before you make the loan.

This loan was suggestend by our team member Joshua Gottesman:

Joshuaaaaaa wrote:
This is not an item listing because I haven't actually loaned yet. This is a second loan being requested from someone to whom I loaned a while ago. He's been repaying steadily, and I think he's worth another shot if anyone wants to jump on board. I'm just a little low in my account now, so I'm going to wait a couple of days.

The loan data is here - http://www.kiva.org/lend/861699




Manuel is 40 years old and the father of a family. He says that his life and his business have improved thanks to the loan he was awarded. Before that loan, he sold a small quantity of Maxan leaves, but now he sells more products, and he is very grateful.

With the new loan he wants to buy and sell bananas in bulk.

Thanks to some repayments I can make another loan this month.

And with my first loan to a borrower in China I can fill a large blank spot on my lending map.

I'm pretty sure this is my 1st Cambodian loan. This one was made from repayments, and is a green project, as are most of the loans I make.



Pov and his wife (both in the picture, standing in front of their house) own a trading business in Prey Gneam Village and 10 hectares of land. Trading charcoal and cattle from KomPong Chnang to Phnom Penh, they run their business very well. However, getting up early to prepare products on the car to bring to Phnom Penh is their daily workload. Pov and his wife need a lot of energy to generate light day and night, but his current energy solution (a car battery) is not reliable. Some of the time, a car battery works well. Sometimes, after just one day or a half day it runs out, which delays their work a lot.

As a result, Pov and his wife decided to apply for a Kiva loan to buy a solar home energy system. They believe solar home energy can enhance their business conditions and also their lifestyle.

A couple of friends of mine are getting married on the 15th, and I got them a $100 Kiva gift card. They have been together a while and have most of the "stuff" they need, and I figured this was a good way to introduce them to the program and hopefully get the good feelings I think we all get from lending. And hey, they are gamers, so hopefully they join the team, too!

Cleon from St. Vincent - yes, I had to google this too - is a businessman; he specializes in wholesale and retail of, but not limited to, alcoholic and aerated beverages, baby diapers (Pampers), and toiletries.

I picked this loan, because I´ve never made a loan to St. Vincent before and so I could fill another little blank spot on my map.

Played this game for the first time last weekend and so, to make up for all the terrible things I caused to happen in the game, I thought using my repayments to fund a loan in Vietnam was appropriate.

Tu, first from the left, is going to use the money to install a new septic tank and handwashing device. I can't even begin to conceive of what it's like to live without clean, safe, on demand water, and I'd really like it if that was true for everyone.



Tu, 47, works in agricultural production with a monthly income of nearly $35. She is married with two grown children but they are currently unemployed. She has been a member of the Women's Union since 1998. She has become the bread winner of the family since her husband has had an intellectual disability for years. She spends the most money on her husband's treatment. Due to economic hardship, her family has not yet been able to build a septic tank latrine and is currently using a double-pit latrine which has now degraded. With a portion of this loan, she will be able to gain access to latrine hardware facilities, which include a hygienic septic tank latrine and a handwashing device with soap. Those facilities will also help her family improve their health, living conditions, and personal safety, in addition to providing convenience, cleanliness, and privacy for all family members, while contributing to the environmental health of the community. In the picture, Tu is the first from the left.
